A Day to Remember by SUE CREASE

Today I'm sharing a layout over at The Mad Scrapper Blog that  I have made of my late Dad taken sometime in the 1980's. I just love the photo as it shows how thrilled he was to collect his winnings from a small bet on a horse race at the Chester races.
For this layout I have used papers and embellishments from 49 and Marketa chipboard and 2 stencils from The Dusty Atticas well as snippets from my stash of "can't throw away" bits.
I started by stitching around the page using green cotton and on the green paper I used cream. I then took the Geo-Star stencil and inked using green, then moved it slightly to the right and inked with Vintage Photo. I also used black gesso through the bubble stencil.
Here you can see (just!) my clear embossing through the Heart Attack stencil, I did also try with white below this but I didn't much care for it so I've tried to cover that bit up!! The green paper Vintage Artistry Collectors Volume 1 – Paper 2 
This next photo shows how I like to use up all my scraps, this time stamping out 2 tickets which I believe to be Sue Wilson stamps. I will cut around these. You will see that green strip below the hope stamp elsewhere on the layout.
Oh yes! I used some rub-ons from 49 too and you can just see the doily and tiny heart here.
I made a little cluster here on the middle right using the leftover from the Dream stamp scrap which I have stitched around, topped with a little bit from Simple Stories as is The Very Best. Also you can see a black arrow perspextives pointing to the text and photo.
This shows the large title chipboard which I inked in the same green and brown distress inks. Oops there is that white embossing. This green layer is mounted on cardboard so I could tuck things under.
Now you can see where I added the tickets also more doily and the green strip with added words.
This last photo shows him in his summer hat flashing his Tenner! Ooh look who remembers 7Gypsy's? I picked these up in 2008 and I think I have one left. You can also just see I added some ephemera pieces below the photo too.
Thanks for stopping by again today. Do call in at The Mad Scrapper  to check out all the lovely papers and other goodies Janine is stocking.
