The Play Date Cafe challenge #87

This is the only stamp I bought from the Sydney Craft & Quilt show this week.  The show really has a focus on quilting now, so there were only a limited number of stamp and scrapbooking stands.  These are the colours I used for the image:
(If I had to colour it again, I would choose some lighter colours for the skin tones.)
I made the text for the ticket using MS Word and printed it in a dark grey.
Stamps: Music - Grant Archival; Guitar Robert - Stampavie; Ticket border - PTI 
Punch: Notepaper - EK Success
Die: Ticket - PTI
Others: Copic Markers; Versamark ink; Momento ink.

My son is attending a Harry Potter themed birthday party soon.  I made this card using a digital image of the Hogwarts crest that I found online.  The yellow is a shimmer cardstock.  It took many attempts to get the crest inside the stamped border.  In the end, the sequence that worked for me was: stamp border, die cut shape, tape to paper I had already printed the crest on, print.
