and welcome to project 2 of 3 for the versatile stamp set Come One Come All.
This card was inspired by all the circuses I visited when I was a child. They were not my favourite thing (the smell was the worst! LOL) but I did enjoy seeing animals I would not normally get to see in my small home town.
With every circus comes a Ringleader. I always loved the rich colours of their costumes and the whole theater of being in front of a captivated audience.
Doesn't he look smart in his tales and top hat! After colouring his coat, I kept the rich red theme for the curtains and the gold for the tiebacks and the ropes holding onto the sentiment sign.
And to make the spotlight on him I simply cut out an oval shape and used it as a stencil with some white Kraft ink. Then cut another stencil with 2 lines slowly meeting each other at the top, and used a little less ink this time.
I also thought I would be clever and cut out his whip but as I was cutting I snipped some off. Ooops! LOL.
Cannot wait to give this to my daughter. I am sure she will love it!
Thanks for looking
