Just the ticket!

This weeks theme on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "tickets". I really love the vintage photos that feature in Tim Holtz's Lost and Found paper stack, so used some of them on this card.

I also tried the versamark shabby resist technique on two of the panels.  I stamped the ornate border with clear versamark ink and dried it with my heat gun.  I then applied distress ink over the top of it, and it gave a white resisit where the image had been stamped.  More subtle than regular stamp-emboss resist techniques, but very effective!  Really great to be able to use the ticket paper in two different scales on the same card too, I love how it looks.  Plus I got busy with the sewing machine, I think I threw everything at this card! lol


Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week! The winner will be chosen at random from those who enter the challenge, so why not give it a try? At the very least why not head over to the Challenge Blog to see how the other members of the design team have interpreted this weeks theme! :)
