When I signed up for the Chunky House swap I knew I had to make something FANTASTIC. It took me about a month to finish this series/set, I wanted them to be similar but diffrent. I loved the idea of using vintage bingo cards I purchased, but I wanted them to be more colorful and fun. SO I painted each background. I had a lot of fun. I love using the vintage children's book illustrations because they are so pretty! I think my partners really loved them, and i have to say this is some of my best and favorite work!

Those are fabulous, audio! I'm so jealous of your partners!

I always love old bingo cards. You used all the bright colors and the illustrations and the text to their maximum advantage. These look great!

I really love the color combos that you used, audio.  Each house really pops! What do you use for your white highlights? Is that paint?

Those are georgous, especially love the bunting effect on the first one, too cute..
and the fourths colour scheme..yummy.
I like the subtle use of the bingo cards too...gives them depth,
like you see a new little texture every time you look Smiley
beautiful ^_^
