OK... so maybe I stretched the theme a bit today. I went with the theme of something NEW... a new stamp set. I inked up the new set Under the Big Top for my card today. Of course it reminded me of Graphic 45's Le Cirque paper... so I pulled out my stash! It was always so hard for me to cut in to my G45 papers, so I have quite a nice little stash! I've been better about using it the past year, rather than just hoarding it! All of the papers came from the 8x8 paper pad of Le Cirque.
I airbrushed around the circle while it was still in the nestie and added some piercing. I added a little of the blue in on the dancing bear's dress.
I stamped the ticket image and also airbrushed those using the same colors in my mine image. I then cut them both out and stacked them up using foam tape.
Before assembling everything I used a CHestnut Roan Cats Eye ink pad to edge every element, giving it a more worn look. Foam Tape and my fluffy seam binding bow add a lot of dimension.
Here's the inside. Again, I edged everything with the chestnut roan ink pad. I added a few of my leftover paper elements to the inside liner. Finished card is 5 1/2" Square. To create the card base I used a die from Spellbinder's Creative Book Pages.
