Carnival Clown

I'm a little late updating my post for this one - you can blame all the overtime I've been doing :)

We've a new challenge today at Outlawz Sketch team - we're being sponsored by Rick St Dennis with his fab images.  Hope this one isn't too scary.....

The one I've chosen for my inspiration card is Laughing Bills Carnival.  I printed it pretty big as I wanted to be able to colour all the detail.  I've used ProMarkers to do this with.  I've also done my ow background with some "fluffy" clouds.

The image was then hand cut because I'd not got a die big enough :)
The edges have been distressed with Tim Holtz black soot distress ink.

For the design paper I ended up picking some flowery number from Lili of the Valley.  When I think of clowns I always think of those stupid fake ones they use with water in them.  To make it slightly more creepy I've also distressed this with black soot.  At the back the whole think is mounted onto some black card stock.
Added extras are some dark blue spotty ribbon, and some twine.  A hot air balloon dress it up button.  A brass skull charm and some black enamel flowers.

Hope on over to the main page to see the amazing inspiration done by the rest of the team :)
