Something Old, Something....Old!


The theme over on the Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge is "Embrace the old!".  I have a friend who is travelling to New York to see some Broadway shows on her birthday soon, so I decided to combine those two elements into a card for her.  The old tickets and old travel ads were perfect for this week's theme!

I started with a section cut from the Destinations paper stash and used Promarkers to colour the headings at the top of the page.  I used some gesso to lighten a section so that the "enjoy the journey" stamp would show more boldly.

The theatre tickets were stamped and cut out, then coloured with Promarkers and arranged then fixed to the background.

She's going to have a wonderful trip, hopefully this card will be one of the souvenirs that will help her to remember it in the future!


Supplies I used included:

Our ever-generous sponsor Simon Says Stamp is offering a $50 gift voucher as the prize again this week, just make something for the challenge and you could the winner! 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! :)

Don't forget, Simon Says Stamp have a great Facebook page too!  Check them out here!

I just love the colours you have used in this card! It has the feel of faded Broadway poster glamour. What a lucky friend.
