TSMONDAY, 1 Ribbon, 2 Papers, 3 embellishments!

Hello, well I'm a day late and and to top it all off, as I was typing the title I realized I didn't
really follow the directions!!! This is for this weeks Totally Stampalicious Monday challenge, it's a 1-2-3 challenge, 1 ribbon 2 designer papers & 3 embellishments...that's where I slipped up! But I do have a buckle, handmade ticket, and I used crystal effects on his glasses, hope that works!
This is the new Beer Guzzlin Gus, he's a Bugaboo image just released last week at Totally Stampalicious in stamp form!
I also used this weeks MOJO180 for the sketch, and the Technique lovers challenge TLC314, to make and use handmade tickets!
I coloured Gus and his chair with copics. Then I remembered a stamp I bought a long time ago from Prima called newsboy collage. I stamped it onto copy paper then stamped the newspaper over it 2 times. I cut these out and layered them with a bit of dimension to look like a newspaper! You can see it better in the photo below!
The card base is black, with a layer of kiwi kiss and then dp from Memory Keepers Teen Angst. The circle was made with a 2" circle punch from scrap dp. The tree line was punched from kiwi kiss with an EK edge punch and the black strip is embossed with the spots & dots EF.
I made the ticket with the ticket corner punch, sponged the edges and then finished it all off with some black grosgrain and a small buckle!
Please join us in our weekly challenge. Just upload your creation to the Totally Stampalicious Blog. There is usually a prize, and Guest Designers will be chosen from those who play in the Challenges!
Have a Great Day!
