Ticket To Ride

Created for the Gothic Arch Challenge where the theme is Tickets. The background was created using the wrinkle free distress technique in Pine Needles & Walnute Stain. This was then sponged over with Tea Dye to add warmth. The ticket background was sdtamped in Walnut Stain, then a layer of dilute gesso brush onto the centre where the image was then placed. A ticket border was stamped in black using the same colour theme, and computer generated text added.
