The image was colored with Copics and double matted with distressed edges. I wanted the background paper to match my coloring so I dabbed it with Close To My Heart ink in Tulip. The cogs and gears were cut with the Donna Salazar Spellbinders die. I distressed some of the edges with sandpaper. The metal finding is from the Tim Holtz line. I gave it the pinkish finish with a Copic marker. The "ticket" is actually 1/2 of a 50/50 ticket that I retrieved from the castoff pile during my Sunday night bowling league. We all know that I can't possibly create without my bling! Amelia has her ticket and is ready for takeoff! She's both girly and adventurous.

  1. Very cute. I had to chuckle when I saw "Black Martha" as one of your blogs. Guess what? I'm the unofficial "Black Martha" in Chicago. I used to watch her show every Sunday morning before church.

  2. Great card, she looks fine and cool background! =)
