Tim Holtz's Tickets Stamp

These are all ATC's that Tina and I made a few weeks ago using Tim Holtz's Tickets stamp as a background. This stamp is huge (we were both surprised to see how big it really was). It is really useful not only as a background stamp but also you can cut the stamped out tickets up and use separately - each tickets measures approx 4.5cm x 2.3cm - and their are 12 in total on this big stamp.

This first ATC is by Tina and is one of my absolute favourites - the colours are glorious and the detail superb. Take a look at the closeup and and I am sure you will agree with me.

Duelling Harlequins - by Tina

Ticket stamp used over a gorgeous background made using colour wash sprays, mica powder and sequin waste. The duelling harlequins are a Lost Coast stamp - beautifully coloured and triple embossed and with German Scrap wings added.

Take your wings and fly - by Tina

Here Tina has embossed in clear onto a lightly coloured background then darkened the background with distress inks.

Art - by Tina

The tickets have been gold embossed giving a perfect background for the collage image.

I Dream - by Karen
Two of the tickets have been cut out to use in this collaged ATC.
The little 'I Dream' girl and the buttons stamp on the background are from the PaperBag Studios Dream Notions plate. We sell the lace, the key and the daisy too.

I have already shown this ATC previously however have put it here again as I used the tickets stamp as a background here - stamped in purple stazon over a purply blue colour wash background.
