Circus Joy

What fab shows today. There were so many gorgeous cards from the DT - I feel privileged to be amongst them.

I thought I'd start with this card as it's the one I did a sneak peek of the other day. It's also one of my favourites.

I based all of the stamping around the Joy Framer from Lesson 4 of In The Classroom with Barbara Gray. They are a great match - it could have been made for them!

After stamping JOY in black Archival I heat embossed it with clear powder. Then I just added the others around it, bending the Circus stamp so that it followed the curve of the "O". I drew the trapeze with a black Micron pen.

The little dog was stamped separately and attached with some Pinflair gel to give it some dimension.

The red and white paper reminds me of a big top. It's a design from the Silhouette Store which I printed out. 

A piece of ribbon and some chunky eyelets finish it off.
