Come to the Circus

Come to the circus 2012
Good morning everyone. My heart is a pounding…. I could not find my card this morning and all my notes where with the card. Yes I do have the pictures but I do not think I would remember all the things I have used, I know I would forget something. OK so now I’m ready, we are starting our challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and the twist for this week is Let go to the Circus. So as it always is anything goes with the twist of Let go to the Circus, if you have not been by you really need to stop by and see all the cards the design team has created, I do have to say they have dome an awesome job for the challenge.
come to the circus left 2012
The images used are from Mo Manning they are called Jo Jo and Cotton Candy girl. I merged the two images together. Printed the images out on X-Press it paper, I do have to say this paper is becoming my most favorite paper to use with my copic markers. The other papers are from Die Cuts with a View and I get that at Hobby Lobby or Joann’s and the name is All About Boys Stack.
Come to the circus side
The ribbon used is from Reasonable ribbon moss olive/white, blue/white, red/white,orange/white. 3 star brads, 5 glitter dots color yellow. I made my own Styrofoam fluff (flower soft) for Jo Jo flowers. Added a small amount of soft pink glitter to the cotton candy.
come to the circus right 2012 For the sky used brilliance sky blue and ice blue. Added a small amount of soft pink glitter to the cotton candy. What you think of her red hair? Never done that before. 5 glitter dots color yellow. I made my own Styrofoam fluff (flower soft) for Jo Jo flowers.
