Tickets & More

Sorry, It's been awhile since I posted, I've been in a lull I think. I went and joined a few swaps in some of my yahoo groups so that I could get my mojo back. The result was great, I'm glad I joined because it forced me to go back into my craft room and finish something. The first swap was on the AllThingsTim yahoo group and the theme was tickets. We all used the Tim Holtz ticket die to cut tickets and watercolor paper. It was supposed to be sort of a watercolor look for these. I used glossy accents over some of the art to bring it out. I'm also entering this project into the Simon Says Stamp and Show
This weeks challenge is to use a favorite stamp and one of my all time favorite stamps is the butterfly one that I used on the tickets. It's part of one my precious Tim sets and I just love it!!!  

The second picture is a swap I joined on TheSumofAllATCs yahoo group. The theme there was Telephone book paper backgrounds. How fun this one was, it was great to tear up the phone book and use it as a background. I also used the Tim Holtz distress stains to color the phone book pages so they weren't yellow and went with my theme. Enjoy!!!
