One Last Circus Card...

...for now, anyway! I don't have any more made right now or anything, but the way that challenge had my brain spinning, I can't swear I won't be making another one!! This one uses Anya and Ian from the Dress Me set. I drew clown make-up on them and drew their fancy clown outfits. If you have an interest in altering, or just drawing your own clothes, this is how I do it: I stamp Anya or Ian and cut them out (I use Dress Me Anya and Ian so much I have just kept one of each cut out of cardstock for this.) I trace the body (and the head if I am making a hat or changing the hair) onto my preferred Copic coloring Cardstock (usually PTI) then start drawing in pencil over my traced body. There's no reason to be nervous because it is just pencil and can be erased! Once I am happy with the pencil lines I go over them with my Copic multi-liner, color, and then cut out and layer over my original stamped image.


The Details:
Stamps: Dress Me - The Greeting Farm
Paper: GCD Studios, Basic Black, Whisper White - SU, PTI White
Copics:
Skin: R00,E00,E11,R20
Hair: E21,E25,E27,E29
Clothes, Make-Up: C0,C1,C3,C5,C7.C9,R35,R37,R39,R89
Misc: SU Photo Corner Punch, Brads, White Signo Pen

I hope your day is Fabulous!

Awesome - thank you for sharing your alter tricks. I've always been curious. Now, I am NOT a big clown fan - but those are two of the CUTEST clowns I've seen - NOT scary at all. *giggle
