“Seize Today” masculine card


I’ve had a set of ticket themed stamps I bought in the dark ages – from Forever in Time and have spent a lot of time wondering where I’d use these.  Today’s Atlantic Hearts Stamp Challenge #260 was the perfect cue:

Now I was not certain whether the ‘image’ square was to say there has to be an image here or in the larger rectangular bit or?  So I just did what felt right and hopefully its ok for this sketch. 

I used a recollections designer paper (I’m really ALL about paper, I used a recollections patterned one.  I chose a coordinating bit of green cardstock to stamp with the ticket image.  I then chose a piece of dark grey cardstock and stamped it with Inkadinkado Life’s Journey Key with embossing ink and gave it a blast of Tim Holtz Distress Powder in Antique Linen.  I like the way it turned out.  I fussy cut it out.  Lastly I stamped the “Seize Today” from Forever in Time onto black using a detail white embossing powder, then die cutting it out. 

I gave it some texture by layering up and voila!
