EmaBee Inspiration: Mexican Bingo

I came across this yesterday and it totally caught my attention because I have been experimenting with using images and cards from the game – “Lotería Mexicana” – or “Mexican Bingo.”

I got my own set of Mexican Bingo cards when I was in Guatemala, actually, not Mexico. I also got a set for my friend to go with this super fun book as a Christmas gift a couple of years ago. Because the cards are so colorful and culturally vibrant, I started using them to make cards [see an example here].

I have been trying to figure out other things to do with them, and maybe I will experiment with something multimedia like this piece. It would be a great addition to the Guatemala Collection (since the game pieces came from Guatemala).
