Altered Bingo Board

I’ve altered a bingo board for Lisa http://craftfairy.blogspot.com/  I was going to keep it until Christmas but I wanted to see her face when she saw it, so I gave it to her the last time I saw her.

It’s only recently that I found out that she loves bingo and as I’d got a couple of bingo boards squirreled away (from Poundland), I thought I would make her something a little more individual for when she goes off to the Mecca!

I’ve stuck bingo tickets from a huge tear off pad (also from Poundland) onto the board and circled a few numbers in pink to add a bit of colour, then applied several of coats of  lustre gloss Modge Podge, which dries pretty fast and has a lovely finish.

But something was lacking, so after a bit of thought I added some K & Co. die cut butterflies and varnished over them too with a sprinkling of hologram micro glitter.

The temptation was to add jewels and 3D flowers etc. but, not that I know a lot about Bingo, I don’t think Lisa would want sticky up things on her board when she is trying to mark her numbers off quickly.
