TICKETS...................

.....................For Simon Says Stamp and Show this week, yes we would like to see some form of ticket/tickets in your creations this week.

A page from the Maya Road Birdcage book was the starting point for my creation, covered with the Kraft Resist Paper Stash using the page with the bird image, coloured with Distress Stain faded jeans,  the bird image on the paper then led me to using the Caged Bird Alterations Die to co-ordinate, cut from Grungepaper.  The bird cage was aged with Distress Ink vintage photo and embellished with metal pieces from my stash.
The bird cage was then adorned with Tim Holtz Adage Tickets, again aged with Distress Ink and crumpled to add to that aged feel.  I also added a Tattered Floral, cut from fabric and added a button to the centre.

The butterfly at the top of my cage came from some jewellery that I found in a sale for 50p which I coloured with rust Alcohol Ink. I added two butterflies, one on top of the other for dimension.

 
I added a Hitch Fastener to the top so that it can be hung to be displayed if required.  My bird has been coloured with Distress Ink and stamped with the Hero Arts Old French Writing stamp in black Archival Ink. I also cut the bars on my cage as I like my bird FREE to do as he pleases LOL.

Please pop over to the Simon Says Stamp and Show blog and take a look at my fellow team members they have created some inspirational projects and remember there is also the chance to win a $50 prize from Simon Says Stamp.  I always look forward to seeing your creations each week.


Thanks so much for stopping by and leaving a comment, much appreciated.  Enjoy your week. Tracy x x

Another stunning piece Tracy. I love the tattered fabric flower and the bird cage with the broken bars so your bird can be free.
Hope you have a good week.

Beautiful use of the frame! The tickets with words is a clever way to use the tickets. The brass circles are wonderful.
