Clown Dance...

"Clown Dance" from Ppinkydolls
can be found here!
613 Ave C's current challenge is ATG/optional twist to use STASH!  Yea!  Love to use up my stash!   There are two sponsors [Ppinky Dolls & Toadstool Printables] this go around.  Two prizes available for you and you can enter up to three projects!  You have a week - I know you have some stash you can use somewhere... don't tell me you don't!  LOL!  I played the twist this time - using stash for all the paper and embellishments.

  • Ppinkydolls provided me with this image to use for the 613 Design Team.  I have never had the opportunity to color up one of these images before - I enjoyed it tremendously!  The artist has provided so much shading in her digi images you almost can't go wrong!  "Clown Dance" can go from almost spooky dark to sweet & shy depending on how you color her - a very versatile image!
  • Neenah "Classic Crest Solar White" 80# Cover Wt. used for the image.
  • DP from Teresa Collins' "Far & Away" collection.
  • The dark burgandy CS was the last sheet of a beautifully textured CS out of stash.
  • The inside is using up the remnants of the papers left from the front.
  • TIP: The Candi [of course a stash item] used for the two corners were white.  I colored them with the darkest shade of burgandy Copics that I had used on the image.
  • The ribbon is a remnant left from a roll.
  • Image panel and mat have been elevated on foam tape.
  • Images were printed on an Epson WF-3520 printer 
  • Hand colored with Copics:
