JoFY Bingo Wk.10

Hello, and welcome to JoFY Bingo Week 10! This was a fun week because both sets drawn by my trusty bingo wheel were from the latest release of stamps! What were the chances of that happening?!! (and no christmas stamps! yay!)

I've made a journal spread (yes, another journal spread!) and I used 3 of the four stamps sets/minis  (pats self on back) ...

I really like the mushroom from JOFY62 and I would usually stamp it onto paler papers but this time I went dark - using some Basic Grey papers from The Stash (I miss  Basic Grey papers - quite a lot of The Stash is made up of that brand).  The flowers in the photo below are from JM62 and I've separated them from their background to use them on the stems from JOFY61 (the similar flowers on JOFY62 were too big for the stems)

 Also on this page is a butterfly...

... which I made from two of the 3 petal flowers on JOFY61...  I couldn't decide which paper to use and so stamped out two options and chose the lighter, pinker one..

I cut out four petals to use as wings.  I stamped the small flower from JOFY61 onto coordinating paper and cut out a couple of petals to see which would work best as a body for the butterfly..

I assembled them and ta daaaa its a butterfly!!  To finish, all I needed to do was draw antennae on once the butterfly was in position on the page.

Its not the first creature I've made from my flowers (or that other people have made - I'm thinking of Lauren Hatwell's sheep again!) but I hope you'll agree its a passable butterfly!

Thanks for stopping by - if you'd like to join in with JoFY Bingo here's the details:

I'm going to continue using 2 stamps sets each week but if you'd like to join in but only have one of the chosen sets then join in using that set! Please come and play!

The numbers are drawn on Monday, along with a project I've made using the corresponding stamp sets, then the plan is to:

  • Use/combine 1 or 2 stamp sets (use only those stamp sets - but not necessarily all the stamps in each set - that would be too much of an ask but as long as there are one or two stamps from each set then its OK!)
  • 7 days to create 1 project, makers choice:  cards... atc... journal page... dimensional project... tag...
  • Use any paints/media, colours, embellishments, stencils/masks
  • Load up your project to Instagram any time during the week.  Please use Instagram links #jofybingo and @jofyjo in the text (not 'tagging' me please) so I can find it :o)
If you don't have an Instagram account you can add your make in the comments on the Facebook post linked to this blog post (facebook links:  https://www.facebook.com/JoFY.JoFirthYoung/ or https://www.facebook.com/jo.firthyoung )

    I hope you can join in - I look forward to seeing what you create!
