Altered ticket swap
I joined up for an altered ticket swap and had a lot of fun with it. The premise of the swap was to use a 5 ticket strip that was connected together and alter it to the category you signed up for. I signed up for six categories! hahahha They were, Beach, Feminine/Frilly, Winged, Masculine Grunge, Halloween and Vintage. I used the Tim Holtz sissex tickets die cut with craft paper. Once I cut out five strips for each category, I then embellished them.
For the Beach ones, I used Graphic 45's To the Sea paper line. I used a feather, some seashells, some netting, some wooden pieces and I hand wrote the word "Beach" on them. Here they are..
For the Frilly/Feminie ones, I used Recollections paper, Prima flowers, washi tape, bling and Recollections chipboard hearts and ribbon.
For masculine grunge, I used Graphic 45's paper, which I then chalked the edges. I used gears lasercut pieces that I bought from Love is in the Details, colored them silver and chalked them with blank ink. I used a metal corner piece and a metal brad to add some masculinity to the look of the tickets.
For the winged.. I used die cuts for the butterlies and Prima paper. I added Prima flowers and adhered one of the butterflies to it. I love how they turned out.
The Halloween ones were one of my favorites. I love Halloween. I used Graphic 45 paper and covered the tickets. Then I chalked the edges with black ink to give a darker look. I used Tim Holtz die cuts for the Halloween shapes. I love them, but a lot of work!
The vintage ones are also a favorite. I love anything vintage. So had a lot of fun with these. I used Prima paper, Recollection flowers, feathers I had bought from Michaels, Prima's adhesive pearl strips, ribbon I had already, along with a vintage looking charm I had bought. I tucked in a vintage cardstock picture. Love the colors! I will definitely do a swap like this again.
