I printed this perriot type clown on white paper and decided to keep it really simple. You can find this image at Rick's Zibbet store, where he has a huge collection of clowns. I added gold to his patterned sleeve, sock, a shoe, the roses and trims, and I used a gold Wink of Stella. I covered the rest of his costume with a clear Wink of Stella brush - the image really shimmers. I added a tiny touch of red to his lips (I hope the ATCAS team don't mind). I die cut a black tag with a faux stitched border and edged the tag hole with some gold card. I adhered the image flat to the tag and added some black, gold and white ribbons. I attached the tag to the card with dimensional tape. I finished the front with a simple, but fun sentiment stamped in gold and black. On the inside I cut a mat layer of black card and stamped some musical notes on the white card.
You can't see the sparkle and shimmer that you get with Wink of Stella brushes (and I think they are my favourite embellishment) in photos that are in focus. So I've taken a close-up of the clown showing just how much he sparkles:
I love this effect - and what's even better is that the sparkle don't fall off and end up all over the floor, on my hands and face or even in the food!! I'm still finding bits of the frantage that I used earlier this week all over the house!! After I made the card I realised that it was looking a bit bland, so I added a simple hand drawn border that you see above - this is what it was before:
That's all for now. See you soon.
Loving your sparkly clown Debs and what a fun sentiment too. Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
