Day 1 - Card Captain at Michael Strong's Stamping Group
I am Card Captain this week for the Yahoo group, Enjoy Michael Strong Stamps. This card is also a submission for Mike's February 2012 Challenge, Hooray-for-Hollywood. I thought "cinema" when using Michael Strong's Cloisonne Mosaic Frame stamp. It's embossed in Zing Gold Glitter Finish embossing powder. I found the Hooray for Hollywood music sheet via a google image search. The film strip was made from a Tim Holtz clear acrylic stamp and his Vintage Photo Distress ink pad. I made my own "ticket" by cutting a rectangle, then using my 1/4 inch punch on the corners. If you are interested in a great ticket tutorial, Hetty from Craft Chaos kindly sent me this link when I mentioned that I couldn't find it. I added a section of Mike's Frame stamp in the center of the ticket and wrote the words with a Pilot G-2 (size 0.38) black gel pen, a recent favorite of mine.
