The green part was white card embossed in one of the Tim Holtz embossing folders from the "Playing Games" set. I then sprayed with green and blue colorwash sprays, which I diluted with water and applied with a mini mister. I then took a Wild Honey distress ink pad and applied it directly to the ticket to highlight the raised areas.
The stamps used were from Tim's set "At the Movies". The popcorn was a bit of precision multi-stamping (which I always love trying - sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, lol!). I started out by inking the stamp with Barn Door distress ink and then used a baby wipe to remove the ink from all but the central circle. After stamping, I inked the stamp with black Versafine ink and used the baby wipe to remove the ink from the central circle, before stamping again in the same place. I'm pretty easy-going about this technique and don't mind if the two colours don't quite match up, but surprised myself by getting this one bang in the right place on the first try! I coloured the background and highlighted parts of the popcorn kernels with promarkers and distressed the edges with Frayed Burlap distress ink, before folding it across one corner and running the ink pad down it to give a dark line.
I used a similar technique on the "sister eileen" movie details, but this time stamped the whole thing with Wild Honey and then restamped the top part again with black ink. I wasn't as accurate with the positioning on this piece, so if you look carefully you will see wild honey peeping out along the edge of the black lettering. Things often end up printed like this in real life, so if you try it and that happens, don't worry about it, think of it as extra "character"! :)
Edges were distressed with Frayed Burlap ink, and I added some strips of tissue tape to the left and right edges before I fixed the elements in place. Finally I added a brown button with some baker's twine, to echo the red in the popcorn ad.
Phew! These things take much longer to type than they do to create! LOL
