tickets of love...

This is a simple little piece but it has lots of layers.
Once again, I've used some tickets from Iralamija. What I did was bump them up with chipboard, each one with a different number of layers so that all three are different heights- I wish you could see that in the photos but it doesn't show. Some glitter here and there adds sparkle. I like to use it very sparingly- I don't want the glitter to be the first thing you see... it should be subtle! I took one of the tickets and wrapped the whole thing with bakers twine and tied it up with an old pink button from my jar.
The 'Diamond' advertisement is a snippet cut from a piece of Jenni Bowlin 12x12 paper. The entire sheet of paper is a repeat of this ad- I can't imagine using it that way but as small accents it's great.
The last thing I did was cut the number strip off the bottom of a ticket and bump it with chipboard and reattach it to a ticket. It's hard to explain what the chipboard does for dimension, but I wish you could see how much 'life' it adds to a project. If you don't have access to sheets of chipboard, a good substitute is a plain old cereal box. You may have to glue several layers together, but hey- its free and you've probably got one in your cupboard right now.
Try it sometime and see what you think!
