This is what I created. There's a lot of masking involved!
I started off by stamping and masking the ringmaster. I could then stamp the tent behind him and when that was masked, the trees could be done. Archival ink was used for all of these. I know you shouldn't use it with ProMarkers but I left it to dry overnight and was careful not to disturb the ink too much when I coloured him in.
The circus wagon was stamped in black Adirondack as there was a lot of ProMarker colouring to be done on that and I wasn't so bothered about it being really black.
I did however want the horses stamped in Archival so I coloured the yellow background in before I stamped them. When I'd finished colouring it was still looking a bit plain so I added the crackle stamp on top.
The bunting was stamped across the top and I masked off the surrounding letters with Post-its so that I could ink up each individual letter of the word CIRCUS.
Then everything was masked off so that I could add the scenery. I used a mixture of my brayer, sponges and brushes to do this. To save myself some really fiddly masking I only masked off the body of the wagon. I then coloured the wheels in black and added the black horse.
To make the tent stand out a bit more I added a line of black around it with a fine Micron pen.
I think that, like the other one, it has the look of a poster about it.
