Game piece







Looking round for inspiration, as you do, saw that Theme Thursday have a challenge to use a game piece for or in your creation.   There is a lot of lovely work already entered but really its all about the challenge and what it inspires.   So after making this I hummed and hawed for a while before deciding to  go with it.

A Tanda jigsaw piece was used as a stencil on the Bingo card. Those Tando pieces come in sets of 3 and I've got plans for mine besides the bingo card is card not paper.    Stamped and sprayed and distressed the the bingo card.    Three precut jigsaw pieces were stamped with Paperartyse time themed stamp, well games are past times.   Once again the three pieces were distressed and sprayed and coloured.   Jigsaw pieces stuck onto a playing card that was subjected to the same rough treatment.      A die and a Bingo counter stuck on top for dimension.   A magnet on the back will make it into a fridge adornment, and yes my fridge has a poster of British Garden Birds on it.
