I fell in love with this beautiful card and Lisa was kind enough to allow us to share it with you. You can visit her site at A Mermaid’s Crafts, you will be very happy you did.
For her film noir inspired card, she used a paper line called Paddington from 7 Gypsies. The ticket strip is a Tim Holtz die, stamped with a Tim Holtz City Central ticket stamp. The edges were inked with Black Soot Distress Ink. The middle squares were cut with Spellbinders Card Creators Matting Basics A & B. Admit One was also cut with Matting Basics A & B, and the sentiment is from the Tim Holtz Steampunk stamp set.
The filmstrip is a Spellbinders Snapshot die. The male images are from the Tim Holtz Steampunk stamp set. The female images are from Hampton Arts Royal Affair stamp set. After the images were affixed to the strip, it was covered in Rock Candy Crackle Paint. Once the paint dried and cracked, it was sponged with Black Soot to give it an aged, worn film look.
The sentiment label was cut from Spellbinders Card Creator Matting Basics A & B. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz Stuff to Say stamp. The edges were inked with Black Soot.
