"Have Fun!"

I'm Back......and I have a card......Isn't this High Hopes Clown just the Cutest?!!

His name is "Juggles".....He is one of the new "Hot of the Press" stamps from High Hopes.

This Wonderful sketch I used is from last weeks sketch challenge SC188.

I went a little color crazy on Juggles hair...but it reminded me of wig my daughter wore for Halloween years ago....lol...she could wear any color clothes with that wig..and it looked perfect. The clown is colored with prismacolor pencils(oms) and H20's...acrylic white paint for accents.

The little hat, flower and the clown is popped up with dimentionals.

I used diamond glaze on the balls and buttons on his coveralls. His nose is a red dew drop.

The background is made by masking the image and brushed on with a inked soft brush.....barely banana for the yellow and bordering blue for under Juggles feet.

The sentiment on the tag "have fun" is part of a high hopes sentiment...."Gorillas just want to have fun!"

Stamps - All High Hopes

Paper: Georgia Pacific, dcwv, little yellow bicycle, mme

Ink: versafine black, barely banana, bordering blue

Accessories: fibres, stitching, dew drop, diamond glaze, stickles, acrylic paint, foam dimensionals

I hope everyone is enjoying a Wonderful Summer.....I've noticed that some of you already have children going back to school....somehow it seems like your summer is so short...but maybe the school vacations starts earlier in your area. Here in Saskatchewan most children don't go back till the end of August....and it seems to me like when they do...it feels like the season instantly changes to Fall.

Thanks for looking Everyone.....and for your Wonderful comments!! You all..... Make my Day!!

Hugs, Ila

Hi Ila, Your card is fabulous and I love your colouring of this cute clown. Love the use of fibres with the sentiment. Zoe goes back to school September 4th so still 3 weeks. It's such a shame as we've had so much rain in the UK.. you wouldn't know it was August. Big Hugs, Nikki x

Maria said...

Holy! That clown is absolutely charming and I love all the colors that you used! It's such a happy card!!

My kids are returning to school next week! I'm not sure I'm happy about it. . .I love when they are on break because I don't have to wake up too early in the morning but they tend take up a lot of my time during the summer. I will miss spending time with them. Time does go by too quickly!!
