Tickets Please

My art group hosted a swap last month. We were to make 5 decorated tickets for our swap partner. This was something I had not made yet so I jumped at the chance to have an excuse to play!  This is what I made...

I used a ticket shape from my friend Penny Duncan. You can get her cut files from her blog here: Penny Duncan Creations Since I don't have a cutting machine, I used the .pdf file and hand cut them. I covered the tickets in my Craft Studio Paper handmade paper and used Tim Holtz's Distress Ink in Chipped Sapphire to add some color to the edges. I punched two flower shaped and inked them with the Forest Moss and Chipped Sapphire Distress Inks. Then I layered the blue flower on top of the green and glued them together. 

I stamped each ticket with either the "Hi There!" or "a happy hello" sentiment, both are from Hero Arts. After attaching the layered flowers onto the tickets, I added a small amount of Ranger Stickles to the center. I can't remember the color. I think it was Star Dust. 

And there you have it! Five decorated ticket shapes. I may do this again because they are the perfect size for a card and can add dimension as well as a focal point.

Have a Happy Day!
