Zoo Crew Ticket to Ride


Okay...here's my very first Everything Wendy Vecchi group challenge entry. Whoo hoo! This week's challenge was to create a wall hanging and to incorporate at least one ticket. My hanging is inspired by our crazy family. We call ourselves the Zoo Crew and our family motto is: We don't just go places, we have ADVENTURES!

My hanging is done on a 5" x 7" flat canvas. I used Ranger alcohol inks (another first!) in Sail Boat Blue and Metallic Silver and Gold. I stamped a random background of arrows in a light metallic gold (Autumn Leaves stamps). Truck is stamped from Wendy's Destination Art set, covered in Glossy Accents and then cut out. The big ticket is from Wendy's Ticket to Art set, as is the "find the adventure in every day" sentiment along the left side. On the ticket, I added the words "destination unknown" from the end of one of her other stamped sentiments. The big "ADVENTURE" across it is from a Studio G $1 set from Michaels. Other stamps are from Close to My Heart--Ticket to Ride and Giggle Alphas.

The quote in the circle is "What I love the most about this life is the adventure of it all" from Juliette Binoche, which pretty much sums me up! The hardware are items I found at Michaels in the clearance section--meant to be beading, Industrial Chic. The one on the ticket looks like an antiquey subway token. The 5 is for our five children. ;-)  Flowers and ribbon are from my stash.
