Scrapper's Delights "Tears of a Clown"


I hope your day is going wonderful!  I am going to do a quick post packed with lots of information.  :-)  Today, Scrapper's Delights is sponsoring the "Craft your Passion" challenge and the theme is dots and stripes.  The Scrapper's Delights DTs were given some awesome images from Janice to play with and I chose the "Tears of a Clown 1" set.  Now, I must interject here and say that I am terrified of clowns.  Yes, they freak me out really really bad.  I don't know what is going on behind all that makeup and they are trained to make you focus on one thing while they do something else.  Tricky devils. *gigl*  Well, despite my fear (and part of my therapy) I couldn't resist playing with this cutie. 

Here's my creation...

Yummy...I love colors and I got to play with some really bright ones for this creation.  My card is actually a circus tent that I played around with and made into a card.  I then used a Spellbinders loop circle diecut to as a mat for the image.  I digitally paperpieced the image, colored some parts with Copics and added a digital flower from Scrapper's Delights "Spring has Sprung" collection.  The "Tears of a Clown 1" set comes with the clown, juggling balls, balloon and sentiment.  I imagine that this poor clown is so sad because everyone is afraid of him and he doesn't see the point of juggling balls or giving away balloons.  If clowns looked like this instead of the clowing from Steven King's "It" I might give them a second chance; however, as it stand now they still freak me out. lol

Okay, well that is it for me now.  Please stop by the store and check out the awesome images Janice has to offer and color them up and entering in the challenge.
