I've had a bit of a relapse with my cold and chest infection.... major coughing... every hour on the hour last night!!! Not much fun for me or hubby either as when I did sleep I was snoring badly!!!! ( Think he was making that up though!) So a visit to the doctor again... more antibiotics and also some Predisone and two days off work. I took my first dose of the antibiotic at lunch time but as I need to not lie down for half and hour, I decided to do some creating.
Judy had made some totally adorable Clown cards for the Cards for Kids project and I thought they were just adorable. I went to KLM Designs website and found that they had a single digi image of Carl the Clown - so I just had to buy him.... I resized him to around 3 1/4 inches tall and printed out an A4 page ( 6 images)
I coloured the image with watercolour pencils and added some accents and dots with a white gel pen. The background PP is from this digi kit. I recoloured it in PSE8 and resized to fit an A6 sheet. I stamped an old Hero Arts sentiment along the bottom. I cut an oval scalloped and sponged it with Tumbled Glass DI before taking the die off. I stamped the balloon ( Rosie's Studio) and lengthened the string before cutting out. I pop doted the clown and then slipped the end of the string under him anchored it directly to the scallop to look like it is behind him! Finally added some pearls for his eyes and buttons.
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great day.
