Ticket, Please!

Hello Monday! Design team member Sandra challenges us this week to show our tickets. Trains to movies, concerts to planes, stamps to paper – let’s see your tickets! Come join in the fun at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!

Conductor, conductor, here's my ticket! Train travel, yes please! I love trains, watching them go by, visiting train museums and seeing the "good old days", and traveling on a train, it is such a relaxing way to go. 

I started with a giant tag because I knew I wanted to put a lot on this tag! Chose some remnant rubs to use, I really like how they work like a resist. Laid down a lovely selection of inks...

I wanted to tone it down a bit and make it look older so rubbed some wild honey over the tag.

Stamped that wonderful train image from Tim Holtz, calendar and passenger coupon (ticket),  the stack of travel cases, and added the ticket washi. I stamped a couple of images on the manila cardstock to layer on top.

Added my images, some metallics, and I am liking the vintage steampunk style to this! I am ready for a train adventure, my ticket's ready!

Where is your ticket going to take you this week? Hopefully on an adventure, and be sure to join us in this challenge! Check out all of the wonderful projects from our awesome design team!

Time to get crafty and and join us in the fun!  A random winner is chosen every week to win a  generous $50 spending spree from SimonSaysStamp!

  9. What an awesome bit of smudgery (not a word) you have going on here! I love how you blended the colors and how the darker parts replicated the puffs of steam from a train. You are so masterful at mixing color with steampunk grunginess!
