Follow Your Dreams Triptych

I used to like doing the Gothic Arches Challenge but sadly it wrapped up so I had it in my mind to make a triptych ......... and this is it !

I used chipboard and my Sizzix to make three base components with the TH  mini cabinet card movers and shapers die. These were covered with papers from Papermania (capsule collection - sunshine paper pack) also cut out with the die for an accurate fit.

Once stuck in place these were sanded and edged with barn door Distress ink and cut'n'dry foam.  I used a stamp with distressed numbers from PaperArtsy to stamp at the top and bottom of all three panels in sepia Versafine Ink. Followed by a row of stars (bottom) and a swirl (top middle) stamped in Versafine onyx black ink

Next I adhered some swirly red satin diecut ribbon across each of the panels.

I then stamped three tickets from 7 Gypsies with Versamark Ink and heat embossed with detail gold embossing powder.  Each was edged in more Distress Ink and a length of bakers twine added and tied in a knot at the front.  Then some contrasting coloured brads were added to each ticket as shown.

Some more 7Gypsies stamps were then edged in black and these along with the tickets were mounted on foam pads.

The words came from K & Co and were also edged with black and added on foam pads.

Finishing touches were to add some Posca pen gold dots around the top edge of each arch.  The three panels were then hinged together with some Washi tape at the back.
