I stamped the Ferris Wheel then cut the insides out with an exacto knife. It's always best to cut before you spend time and waste ink coloring when using an exacto knife, just in case you mess up with the exacto knife. Trust, I've learned this the hard way before! I just colored it pretty simple with Copics and adhered mini gems to the tops of the Ferris Wheel cabins and one larger one in the center. I always see real life Ferris Wheels with lights on them, so adding the bling kind of reminded me of the fancy lights of the Midway. Once everything was ready I adhered it with foam adhesives to the cloud paper background.
For the tickets I did pretty much the same, except I distressed the side edges a bit with my distress tool so that they'd look like they were freshly torn from a giant spool of tickets. I adhered the center ticket first with a slightly thicker foam adhesive and then the other two were added with the thinner foam adhesives. I also wrapped some green baker's twine under the Ferris Wheel to kind of ground the wheel so it didn't look like it was floating in the sky. Grass I guess.
The last thing I did was cut my, "You make my world go round" stamp into two separate stamps so that I could curve it a tad and stamp it horizontally. Lawn Fawn stamps are super easy to cut because they're so well made! I can easily piece them together on my acrylic block if I want to go back to using the stamp as it was intended. I stamped out a banner from Lawn Fawn's Bannerific stamp set and stamped the sentiment on it. Then I added some Copic coloring and cut it out. I layered it on a couple pieces of plain cardstock to give it a lil height, but not too much.
Thanks so much for stopping by! And thank you so so much to my new followers! You're all awesome! When I reach 30 followers I'll post a contest for a random draw for a huge stash of blog candy to give away as a thank you!
Inky and glittery fingers for all!
