Altered Tickets for my upcoming Junk Journal

Well i've finally decided to start on my "Fair Entry" journal this year. I've chosen to go with a Themed Journal of Beatrix Potter, mainly focusing on Peter Rabbit but i have to add a few friends. lol
I found some awesome new graphics from Vectoria Designs on Etsy. If you haven't visited her shop for Junk journaling you should. 
Well, i discovered altered tickets recently and decided to give it a go.  I'm thinking about using the strip tickets for Belly bands on some pages and for some embellishments also in my journal.

Alcohol inking- So much fun!

I've broke out those alcohol inks that i've had in my drawer for awhile. As you probably know if you follow me, i go through stages in my creativity. lol. 
To create this background i used my Tim Holtz alcohol inks. I first layed down the color and then stamped the flowers over the top. I had to do it that way because even though i was using Staz on ink they would smear from the alcohol. The stamps that i used i picked up at the Heirloom Pro show a few weeks ago called "Forever in time" along with my Tim Holtz flowers that i had in my stash.

Gatefold card using Art Impressions stamps

Well i couldn't decide whether or not i was going to enter a card into the Art Impressions Gatefold challenge but i had a little boost of energy and decided to work on something. 

Since i only own the watercolor stamps from Art Impressions and one Christmas set i broke out my watercolor stamps.

Both flaps closed- held closed by the tree trunk
  


Left flap closed, right flap open, The die finishes the scene with the cat looking away.


Right flap closed, left flap open. The die finishes the scene with the cat looking forward.


Both flaps open, the right flap is blank so i didn't take a photo of it.
