Big Top

Hi ya, all! I thought that I'd squeeze in an entry for this week's sketch over at CAS(E) this sketch.


I also tired the watercolor background technique that Dawn shared in this post. I didn't go with the bokeh look and I also don't know if I did everything right. But I like the watercolor look and those colors are so yummy together! =) This is also for the "Everything Goes August Monthly Challenge over at Inspiration Journal. Here is a look of Sketch #88.


I pretty much stuck to it this time. =)


The image is from Tim Holtz's Big Top set that comes with matching dies from Sizzix. I inked it up with Coffee archival ink and colored it with Koi watercolor. The stars are stamped with watercolor as well.


The sentiment is made from my good old trusty label maker with a couple of tiny attachers to anchor them.

That's all I have for now. Don't forget to submit your projects to the Everything Goes challenge for a chance to win 50 Emporium Dollars to use in the Inspiration Emporium Store.

Holy cow--that background is awesome! Your coloring on the elephant is fabulous as always. The fact that you cut him off is just so clever. Love it!
