The sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps so I added a few Meljen’s images for a grand parade. I added lots of embellishments too and of course used my favorite paper from last week! The tent banner was first inspired by one of my teamies who came up with a more creative name… that’s just a teaser so head on over to the Make it Colourful challenge blog to see which one. ;D
Here’s the Circus Tent background before it was mounted on the card. The sky was created with the Copic airgun and I used three of the BG colors to spray it (BG11, Bg72 and BG75). The angle of the airflow was a bit awkward and not what I’m used to. Plus I wasn’t able to adjust the airflow with the single can setup so I’ll have to work at my technique.

Did you know? Wilson Alwyn “Snowflake” Bentley (February 9, 1865 – December 23, 1931), born in Jericho, Vermont, United States is one of the first known photographers of snowflakes. He perfected a process of catching flakes on black velvet in such a way that their images could be captured before they either melted or sublimed. Bentley poetically described snowflakes as “tiny miracles of beauty” and snow crystals as “ice flowers.” He captured over 5,000 images of crystals in his lifetime.
