Lucky

Combining challenges again today. Sneaking in just under the wire with Linda's challenge for the week. Based, as always on the works of t!m!.  This week sponsored by Simon Says Stamp. And also the OCC challenge which is Luck O' The Irish. I used to participate in the OCC challenge and kinda got away from it, but now my friend Anita is one of the design team members, so I'm thinking I'm gonna get back to doing that challenge again.  

Linda's challenge was to use alcohol inks and make a plaid design. And the OCC challenge was to use a BINGO card and green on your design. So I used Lettuce, Oregano, Stream and Pitch Black alcohol inks to make my plaid design. Then embossed with t!m's BINGO embossing folder. I used Gold Paint Dabber and Claudine Hellmuth Studio Charcoal Black Acrylic paint to highlight the numbers and lines on the BINGO card. Pinky helped out by cutting 4 hearts from my corregated paper using the CTMH AP cartridge to make my "shamrock" and I used some of the CTMH papers from the Crusin paper pack to spell out 'lucky" to use instead of BINGO chips. Finally a 17 from my number plaquettes and I've got one more card to add to Debbie's box for the walk/run coming up next month!

This is very cool Sue, I love the mix of colours you chose for your 'plaid' and how clever (brave?) to then emboss the Bingo card, I really like the gold details as well, Anna xx
