Pac-Man Geek art

by Amy Bowerman

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!!).

Pac-man Distressed

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.
