B&W Birthday Clown Card (LMMS Challenge #166)

Hi everyone! :o)

Today a new challenge starts at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge Blog. It's #166, Anything Goes Challenge.

For this challenge I made this monochromeBlack & White, Birthday Clown Card. :o)

For my card I used LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Lark' digital stamp.

I liked a lot black & white color combination I achieved on a card I created for our previous challenge, B&W Birthday Balloons Card, so I decided to go with B&W color combo on today's card too.

I printed the clown on a watercolor paper and left it aside for couple days. I colored a background and clown in watercolor technique using Distress Ink Black Soot. I wanted the background darker than clown, so I used black aquarel colored pencil and watercolored the background with it.

After I dried the panel, I covered the clown with paper towel scraps and splattered the panel with white Acrylic Paint mixed with water. I left the panel dry on air. After drying, I glued the panel on a top folded white card base, added white highlights (dots) on flowers and buttons on clown's outfit with a white gel pen and my card was finished.

Card dimensions: 96 mm x 129 mm (3 3/4" x 5 1/16")

  • LMM's Forgotten Scraps 'Polka Dot Pals Lark' digital stamp
