The Circus is in Town!

Yes, you read correctly..........the CIRCUS is here!  Just knowing that leaves such a warm fuzzy feeling of wonderful memories.  My Mom took us several times and it was such a really exciting thing......the tent, clowns, animals, so much to look at, and everything was happening at once. 



My card features the collage from Vintage Circus from Artistic Outpost.  The main image was done with water color pencils, then I did the Cracked Glass technique over it.  (You may have to look really hard, as it doesn't show well on the orange! lol)  The rest of the piece was done with distress inks, pencils and markers.  Sure put a smile on my face today.  hugz,

Love this plate! Just made party invitations for my youngest grandson's first birthday using this stamp. He wasborn early and we nicknamed him 'little peanut' so we thought a circus - themed party might be fun. I love how you colored the image. Bravo! Best, Yvonne
