The Circus is in Town

 Roll Up Roll Up! Come and visit the circus's the greatest Show on Earth

Oh no that was the Clarity show last week! Wasn't it a great show...Barbara was certainly on top form with her demos. I found myself glued to the screen on all of them and held my breath on one...I'll let you guess which it was!

Anyway I thought I would start to share my samples with you from the show. and start with the circus set.

I do like this set and I just know it will be great for men and children as well as female friends so a really useful set!

Here is one of the cards I made with it.

I wanted to make a card that would allow a little surprise to reflect what you get when you go to the Circus. So I started off by making the central flap. Having played about with the stamps I discovered that the circus word would make a nice circular border that the clowns face fitted into. I added the little red dot in between each word just to separate them out. I brushed ink around the edge to finish that part off.

The next stage was to make the main topper. I wanted to be able to see the tall ring master with the flap down as well as up so I cut the card long enough to do that and stamped the ringmaster in place twice. I put feint pencil lines to show where my flap would be covering and then stamped the underneath part.
Here it is.

I then coloured in the images with promarkers before I attached the flap and then mounted it onto black card then onto a red card blank.

Well thats all from me for today. I hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Happy Crafting
