Ticket to the Moulin Rouge


Welcome to day two of teasers for My Favorite Things! I just know you're going to love this new Die-namic and stamp combo set, Just the Ticket really is just the ticket! (I know, stick to my day job!) I love all the ticket elements in this set, they are so fun.

I think of this as my Moulin Rouge card - once it was done it just screamed Moulin Rouge to me, must be all those red scallops!


I had a blast combining elements and distressing on this card. See that gorgeous flourish? You are going to need that Die-namic, it's wonderful! I've used the negative left behind from cutting the flourish to add some sponged detail to the background of the card. I've also used my air spritzer thingee to add some grungy droplets to the background, as well as some sponging and distressing of the edges. 

I also sponged the edges of my mini rolled roses before putting them together, then added some cinnamon stickles for a bit of shine. I'm stuck on making these long, tall cards - I use the offcut of cardstock I get when I cut a 5"x5" card - it leaves a remnant that is the perfect size!


I like the inside of this card just as much as the front! I've used a couple more tickets - aren't they wonderful? I've also used the fancy flourish again, as well as a mini ticket strip, stamped with the small happy birthday sentiment from the birthday ticket image (I just inked it up with a marker)
