Life Is A Circus

Hey lovelies, Tracy here with you today. I took a bit of a crafty break during January but I am really happy to be back and super sad I missed the January release…how awesome was it ? shhhh I can tell you the next one is just as awesome but thats just between us ok.

I couldn’t resist using the Life Is A Circus Stamp set for my first card back, it was SO fun to colour.

I started off creating the background using Spectrum Noir Harmony inks, I wanted a spotlight kind of effect, hopefully it comes across like that.

Whilst that was drying I stamped the images onto some Neenah card and coloured them with Spectrum Noir Markers. I decided to add some extra detailing with white gel pen and also added some extra sparkle. I then used the matching dies to cut them out.

I then used one of the new stamping blocks to stamp the sentiment….have you checked out the new blocks…they are pink !!!! I love them and they stamp perfectly.

Hey it isn’t a show without some sparkle is it ?

I adhered the showman/ring leader using some foam tape for added dimension and the other elements I adhered flat.

To add some extra shine I adhered the main piece to some fold mirror card leaving a thin boarder and adhered the whole piece to a A2 Red Card.

I decided it still needed something so I used lots of the new gold glossy dots and scattered them all over the card.

And I then stopped myself adding anymore sparkle or shine and called this card done.

I honestly had so much fun creating this card and this stamp set has already become a new fav.

Thank you so much for stopping by today, I hope you all have an amazing day and happy crafting.
