12 Tags of 2014 - June

Just popping in to post my June tag for the Tim Holtz 12 Tags of 2014.  I used the Harlequin layering stencil and the recently released Stamper's Anonymous Big Top stamp set.  I really enjoyed 'printing' with the stencil and look forward to trying this technique with my other layering stencils.

My favorite part is the two diamonds to the left of the juggler that came out as pink and orange spots!!  It looks like I had too much water on the right side though.  And I need to improve on dying my crinkle ribbons!  I think I'm working them too much causing the colors to get muddied together.

 
I colored the juggling clown with distress markers and a water brush.   Cutting out the little balls was tedious but worth it!  I added some Ranger glossy accents to the balls, the base of the drum and the little buttons on his costume!  I love that Big Top stamp set!  It's great fun!
