I had a little fun with this challenge today. This is in fact the world's first winning BINGO card. It's a bit old as you can tell with the copper, gold, and black distressed top and game pieces. And as you can see, Mr. Herbert Louis Whitshaw-Pettigrew of Ludlow, Shropshire was quite shocked to learn of his windfall upon the verification of the BINGO numbers.
I used silver plumber's tape for the silver area...these were embossed and/or cut out with nesties. I applied gold, black, and copper acrylic paint over them, rubbed or sanded some away.

FABULOUS Pol!!! LOVE the colors on your "metal" bingo, and the embossing too! That is my favorite part, so cool!!! The bingo card is super FUN and Mr W-P is a hoot! All your charms and gears...and stach are quirky bits that add to your ecclectic flair! LOVE it all! You are inspiring me to give this challenge a try!

This came out great. Plumbers tape is a very creative idea (don't you love coming up with new sources for crafting supplies???). Your story was super fun too -- you'd fit right in with the Teapot Tuesday challenge.

I really look forward to seeing what you do each week in this mixed media challenge - you are so incredibly creative and your card is just so awesome - I love the mix of the gold, silver & copper colours and the little additions you add such as the clock, moustache for example!!
