Had to get my Geek on for this weeks Grungy Monday challenge. To see the technique used for this challenge check out Tim’s Blog post. I was trying to finish this project as a gift for my son’s teacher but ran out of time (I bit off a little more than I could chew this week with all the projects I had to finish but somehow managed to get mostly everything done…whew…a deep breath is long overdue!!).
I think I may have let the paint dry a little too long. I had two pinatas to finish for my son’s pre-k graduation party and got so caught up in that I forgot about poor pac-man!
I used heavy black board for the base and black shimmer cardstock for the base of the pac-man game board. I had a random computer code stamp in my stash that I had never used and thought it would give the background a little more interest. While I was researching pac-man on wiki (wanted my design to be on point) I discovered that Pac-man was originally intended to go on indefinitely as long as the player had at least one life left but due to a glitch in the code it stopped once a certain number of levels had been completed. After that I had to add the code in…how can you not? The game board was created with blue cardstock and Stamper’s Anonymous Stamps. For the dots I used an embossing folder and ran embossing ink over the embossed cardstock….then I cut it up into strips….yeah that was VERY tedious but doesn’t it look cool? Pac-man and the Pac-man ghosts were cut from cardstock by hand and embossed. Throw it all together and there you have it Thanks for coming by I’d love to hear what you think.
