I started with the background and I masked off the left hand side and then stamped the swirl which is by Crafty Individuals, on the right hand side with Versamark and then blended blue and red Pan Pastels over it to make a shade of purple. On the left hand side I stamped the manikin image, which is by BLine Designs, and the words, which are from a Darkroom Door set. The fancy corners are from a Katzelkraft set. The vertical panel is stamped with the Stampin' Up En Francais background stamp and then embossed with the Victoria EF. I punched the edge with a Martha Stewart punch and blended DI over it. I used a Tim Holtz stamp from the French Marketplace set and tore pieces out of the card and then blended DI over it.
The main image is a Katzelkraft stamp and I've cut it out using Nestabilities. The ribbon is seam binding and I rubbed DI over it and then sprayed it with a few drops of Chipped Sapphire re-inker in some water. The butterfly is cut from black shrink plastic using the mini Butterfly Tim Holtz die and the letter is a Type Charm.
The tickets are all cut from crinoline using the Tim Holtz die and then inked with DI. I then stamped onto them using Katzelkraft and Oxford Impressions stamps. The '21' is made using the Vintage Market die, Black Soot DI and Glossy Accents.
