Time is a Circus

Time certainly is not on my side this week, so much to do and not enough time in my day!  With that being said, I combined quite a few challenges into one card.

I started out with The Kraft Journal's Carnivals, Parades or Parties Challenge (yes a bit of a creative stretch), and added in the MoJo Monday Sketch.  Then decided to work in Simon Says Stamp and Show a Tim Holtz Technique (Wrinkle Free Distress).



All stamps are from the Artistic Outpost Vintage Circus Plate, stamped in Black Archival. For the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique, I used both Ranger Distress Ink (Tattered Rose) and Distress Stains (Wild Honey, Fired Brick and Broken China).  On the panel with the boy, I went back and colored using the inks and an H20 Brush to add more detail.

Don't forget tomorrow (August 10th) is the last day to leave a comment on THIS POST for your chance to win your own copy of My Memories Digital Scrapbooking Software!

Super job with this stamp set, Lisa. I really like how you have given it such a bright and sunny/summery feeling, while still retaining the vintage flavor. Great job with the TH technique challenge. So happy you joined in the fun with us this week at Simon Says Stamp and Show.
