Bingo Board and another Wall Hanging

Hi all, welcome to Tuesday morning. Over on Anything Goes Challenge Blog we have a new challenge for you for this fortnight our theme is 
"Bingo Board" chose either Corner to Corner going through the middle using your choice, Side to side going through the middle using your choice", Top to bottom going through the middle using your choice or around the outside using the 4 items to make it more difficult.  

For my inspiration I made another wall hanging using the gorgeous Magnolia stamps from the fabulous new collection "Crazy Sweet Love". I just think that you can use these stamps for so many different occasions. 

I'll start with the top plate were I have distressed all the edges then inked with walnut satin.  These devilish papers are from Bo Bunny - Gabrielle.  The fence die is one of my favourites Magnolia Doohickey dies.

  I did have the fence punch from Martha Stewart but it broke after a few punches, was not impressed at all.  The lovely windmill I have had for a while and in fact I had stamped and coloured this image in a while ago for another project but didn't use in the end so was glad that I have found a use for it.   
This little Tilda is just adorable! I will be using her a lot in future. I have tried different colours than I usually do for the skin.  E13, 11, 00, 000, R20 she looks like she has a bit of colour to her.  Tilda's clothes are coloured with E44, 43, 41, 40 - E79, 77, 74, 71, 70 - BG18, 15, 13, 11. 
Not sure on the colours for the windmill.

Here you can see the fence and another of Magnolia Doohickey dies - Small Flowers.  These have been inked and double flowered using kraft paper and plain old cream card stock and distressed.

This is the middle plate that I have kept quite plain and a first for me.. no flowers.  The metal corner and tab I have used white embossing powers as I am so inpatient I hate waiting for paint to dry..lol 
I have stitched around the edges using zigzag stitch using my ancient sewing machine.  The thin velvet aqua ribbon matches perfectly to the colours I have used on Tilda.  Magnolia Doohickeys boarder and tag with some tulle add some interest.  

I'm having a go at shading around Tilda, I think I find this the hard part of the colouring process as I can never seem to get it just right.  As they say practise makes perfect, so I keep trying...

This is the last plate that I have really gone to town with and embellished, embellished, embellished! Again using Bo Bunny papers, kraft, and cream card stock.  The brown circle behind has been embossed using a cuttelbug embossing folder - Script. 

The flowers have been splashed with Creative Inspiration Paint, love this paint range and is just gorgeous!! 

I have given the paper and butterflies a splash of white acrylic paint and then painted over with the CIP.  
Again sorry for the long post and photos.  Please head on over to the challenge blog and see what the rest of the team have created! All are totally gorgeous!!
