One of my friends is turning the big 5-0 soon, so I thought she needed a little memento of the occasion, but one that didn't scream, "Oh my gosh, I'm 50!". I wanted to design this around the Everything Wendy Vecchi Yahoo Group's current challenge of "Plaid". I love plaid and couldn't wait to make my own design using Wendy's stamped image of it. There is even a pattern of plaid in Scotland from my family's clan (MacFarland) designed an ion ago. I have always wanted to get a bolt of it to make something grand to wear...someday!
I am also submitting this to Hels Sheridan's Sunday Stamper challenge of "Patterns", and The Stamp Man's Challenge of "Celebrations".
|I stamped all my Art Parts using Wendy's stamps and Archival Ink, and then colored them in with Dylusions Ink Sprays using the water brush pens.|
|I even used the Dylusions to color the velvet trim.|
|I trimmed the base and ticket in Pitch Black Acrylic Paint and then used a white pen to add a little more detail.|
From My Stash: all trims, snaps, rhinestones, picture hangers
