Challenge : 2 in 1

Hello !
Here is a LO i made for using prompts from 2 challenges

1. prompt #1 : Simon Says Stamp - Monday : Tickets

2. prompt #2 : ARTastic - background - use stencils, gesso, paint, ink, texture etc.

here is my LO :

I used my Aug 2015 - counterfeit kit products to create this layout.

Other fun things i did :
>> made a 12x12 Kraft background using 8.5x11 paper by stitching them and cutting them to size.

>> used the Heidi Swapp - Texture paste - GOLD  to add my title using a negative die-cut of a alpha sheet and a few triangles using a Amy Tan - Rise and Shine stencil. love this stuff.

>> i finger-painted the lines on the background through a stencil with acrylic paint. so fun. Another thing i learned in the Studio Calico class - for the gold i used Golden - Iridescent Gold (Fine).  i love love this paint.

Thank-u for all the love & thank-u for stopping by. :)
