A day at the Circus

    The challenge this week over at  Sunday Postcard Art   is "CIRCUS"
      My background substrate is sketchpad weight paper with a myriad of colors of paint and ink; as this is a piece from an earlier play-day. 
   I ran the postcard size paper though my Cuttlebug, using a square inside a square template (not sure of real name) before adhering my ephemera.  
   The vintage graphics used are from Deviant Scrap/Tumble Fish Studio.   Some of the graphics I backed with cardstock for different thicknesses to give the card a 3-D appeareance. 
  Other products used on my postcard were
 Silks-Pink Azalea  and 
Ranger Stickles Glitter Glue in some of my favorite colors- Waterfall, Fruit Punch, Star Dust and Peacock. 
Have I ever said I love Stickles?Maybe once or twice-huh?heehee
                                             and now for a close- up of the fun!

      I'll be back this afternoon with another challenge piece-stop back and check it out! ")

I "KNOW" you because of Stickles. It's what got us talking over at Strathmore back in 2011. The movement in this is wonderful. Beautiful. (hey, Life is a Circus)...I heard something about that somewhere.

Delicious colours and those wonderful and dynamic circus images! The colour combos remind me of the cover of the Beatles 'Sergeant Pepper' album. I remember fondly the colours of the '70s when Victorian circuses were really cool! A lovely nostalgic piece! Julie Ann xxx

Love the great circus colors and awesome feeling of movement. I went to a circus many years ago and there were people flying all over the place and lots of happy looking elephants! Felt very much like your post card!
