I've missed a lot of crafting in May due to workmen in house type of thing, well in garden really and then last week I got an insect bite and had a reaction to it which meant I couldn't use my arm properly..I swear the insect was huge... with a wingspan of 3ft...OK a bit of an exaggeration but it felt like it LOL ... I bought a few crafty things in the meantime to cheer myself up..well you have to don't you?
anyhow... there is a great challenge over at Out of a Hat Creations about 'Tickets' and 'just the ticket' for me to use some new stamps I got yesterday.
Other than stamps, the 'Ticket to Paradise' I designed using my computer, printed out and then used Gel pens over writing and embossed with clear embossing powder.
Then using distress stains started ageing and grunging it.
Stamps used: 'All aboard map' by Urban Stamps/Papermania and 'Grand Tour 1' by IndigoBlu.
Also used 'Peony purple' dye ink by Impress, Vintage photo distress pad, Tim Holtz distress stains in Scattered straw, Victorian velvet and walnut stain.
Black permanent pen around edges.
Thanks for stopping by ....happy crafting x
