Happy Birthday Clown Card


Image

Hi There,

I’m entering this into the Peachy Keen contest for using their new June Stamp Release. I decided to make a clown Happy Birthday card.¬†I stamped the Happy Birthday several times to create the impression that the clowns were singing “Happy Birthday”.

For this card, I used the stamps from PKSC-30 June 2014.

I used my Spectrum Markers to colour the clowns.

For Faces I used Gold Brown (GB) 4,5,6; Flesh (FS) 1,2,3,4; Tan(TN) 2,3,4. The cheeks were coloured with Coral (CR)4.

The clowns outfits were coloured using various other Spectrum marker colours. For the pompoms at the top of the clown hats, I used “FlowerSoft”.

I used my Cricut to cut out the world from the “Going Places” cartridge and surrounded the clowns around it.

I cut out various circles with my “Lifestyle Crafts L” Nested Circle¬†cutting dies and used some coloured cardstock that I had on hand and then layered them. I then used an “Action Wobble Spring” behind the world so that you can spin the clowns.

The birthday paper background is from “Birthday Wishes Specialty Collection”.

Hope you like it!
