Diva's Play Bingo

Morning everyone and welcome to a new challenge over at Diva's by Design.  This time we're playing bingo, so select a line from the grid below & off you go!

Sponsoring us this time is the fabulous Delicious Doodles, a company new to me, and surprisingly right on my doorstep as the owner, Teri stays in Elgin, less than an hour's drive from my home!

The image I chose for my card is a local scene - I recognised the viaduct at Cullen as soon as I saw it, so thought it was the perfect one for me!  It's called Harbour Scene and is available here.

The image has been slightly shaded with Promarkers before use and my edges have been distressed & inked.  One of the panels has been embossed with little boats, but I think you may just have to take my word for that as it's not that clear from my pic!

Finally the card is finished off with a ribbon and gems to complete the first column of the bingo grid.

Below is a real life photo of the above scene.  I didn't quite get the angle right, but you can see it's the same location - just I wasn't on the right spot on the harbour wall! Oh yeah, and the tide was out on my visit.

613 Avenve Create - Anything Goes
That Craft Place - Monochrome

How cool that you have been to that spot and that you shared your photo alongside your card. I like the black and white colour scheme and the simple embellishments. The ribbon is a great detail. Thanks for joining our All at Sea challenge at Craft Your Passion this week. I hope we see you again soon.
