Ticket Obsession.....

A couple of days ago I cam across an Art of Craft video on You Tube where an artist was using Tim Holtz's Ticket strip die in the most unique way.
She was stamping the tickets with individual art images instead of using ticket image stamps.
Well, I have come completely obsessed with the idea and have started making some myself.

Here are a few that I have stamped and not yet colored. Including some of Tim's Stamps, some from an Alice in Wonderland set and some Asian Buddha images.


Here are a few more from bird sets including the set used in the video.


Here is the first set I colored. Images are from Paper Artsy. Inset image is a close up of one of the tickets.
I used only Distress Markers on them.

This bird image is a from a Martha Stewart set.


This is my favorite set so far. Images are from Clearly Stamps.
I used Copics, Prismacolor and Distress markers on these.
Covering the colored images with Glossy Accents before inking the backgrounds with Distress really make the images POP.

I told you I was Obsessed with them. I am considering doing a swap on ATT if there is enough interest.

  13. Thanks for suggesting the video. I only watched part of it because after about 10 minutes my computer started buffering about every 10 seconds so I gave up. However, I saw enough to feel like I NEED to do this. Love your examples and I can hardly wait to get started.
