Tickets, Tickets, Tickets


I joined a new yahoo group and learned about this very talented lady in New Zealand. Http://www.artofcraft.co.nz/blog
Watch some of her videos on youtube! She is amazing! Anyhow, someone on the group, All Things Tim, earmarked her video on tickets and that started an amazing response!! I went nutsy along with a bunch of others. I don't have the Tim Holtz ticket die, but I do have Fabulous Finds, a cricut cartridge that has a ticket on it. I was so excited to find it! I dearly love my Gypsy. I just turn it on and do a search! My goodness how much time and energy it saves me! So I made a bunch of tickets from a big Tim Holtz tag and also cut some oversized that I made into a strip from watercolor paper. I watercolored them with reinkers and my new Tim Holtz waterbrush. I decided that I didn't like working on the tag material with water. It pills. So I could cut them out of watercolor paper and use my reinkers or cut them out of the new stamp paper and try that. I could also cut them out of copic paper and use copics with the distress for the backgrounds! Lots of stuff to try. So here are a couple of photos. I did one just for size comparison. I am not super thrilled with making a lot of things the same. Talk about fun!! There are stamped greetings on the back of each and then I did a shading with the distress inks! Love this!! I decided though that I am cutting out a whole bunch and leaving them blank to put on cards or whatever and will stamp and color them to match whatever I am doing while I am doing it. That way I only have to store plain tickets and they will be ready for me when ever! I can't figure out how I would find them to use without it taking all day if I color them like I did for these. Oh well, it is such a cute thing, and I am going to be adding at least one ticket to everything I do from now on!! Hugs to you all, Barb F

These are all so cute and colorful. I'm with you on that concept of storing them blank to make later to match cards. I've still got tons of pre-colored things waiting for homes!
