This month, I get to be a Guest Designer with the other Bacon Bits! I am so honored to be asked to participate this month. It is a bit of a flashback for me and I hope you have as much fun viewing my creation as I have had making it!
This week features the Clowns digital image from Hambo Stamps. The challenge this week is to use the clowns image and one of the sentiments...sounds easy peasy right? Well...there is a twist! You have to use at least 3 patterned papers! Now I love me some patterned papers, but this was a stretch for me! I love to color and usually only use a singular patterned paper on my cards. I definitely had to go outside my comfort zone. I decided to print the image on some patterned papers and cut them out to paper piece parts of the image. I had never actually tried that before and was surprised at how easy it was!
After I colored the remainder of the image with my Copics, I proceeded to cut out the pieces of the various patterned papers and add them to the main image. Voila! Just to make sure I had enough patterns on the card (I always was an over-achiever), I added one more for the card base!
I hope you enjoy the card! Join the Bacon Bits over at the Hambo Hoedown and clown around yourself! You will feel much better afterwards!!
FYI...I won't be able to participate next week as I will be visiting family in Tennessee, but I will be back for the rest of August! Wheeeee! I can't wait to see what fun images I get to play with the rest of the month!
