Bingo you make me smile

This week at Gingersnap Creations during the month of March's focus on family, the challenge is Copper, Rust, Ginger,  #GC144 .  Did you know that Gingersnap Creations was my first Design Team position! As this is the last challenge at Gingersnaps, I want you all to know how much fun I have had and that I will miss everyone. But do remember that Gingersnaps will be transformed into Unruly PaperArts, so we really aren't saying goodbye... we can still play together!

Retro Cafe Art Galley was the generous sponsor throughout this month at Gingersnap Creations. You know if you read my posts, that they carry  awesome collage sheets and images in a variety of formats,  fun altered art supplies, fabulous vintage finds and more.  They are also offering prizes  to one randomly drawn winner from the qualifying participants for this challenge. Don't forget to check their facebook page, they are always giving away freebies too. Also, please do come back to Gingersnap Creations to vote  for the 10 Ginger Gems for this challenge.

To make this collage, I started with a Bingo card that I watercolored and added chipboard copper trimmed flowers to the edges. I layered Retro Cafe Art Steampunk parts transparencies and rhinestones. In the center is a copper and glittered painted RCA Gothic shrine with a friends image from the Vintage Belles Collage Sheet. Some glittered butterfly cutouts and metal buttons came next. The finishing touches were some ribbon trim, rhinestones was the sentiment "You make me smile".

Hope you will smile when you think fondly of Gingersnap Creations.
take care, gerri
