JUST CLOWNING AROUND

NOW TRADED
I made this for the Crazy Amigo challenge, which this week was blue and red. It isn't really a colour scheme that comes naturally to me who's first love is a vintage look, however that's what challenges are about, right?

I was given a brilliant book for my birthday called Rubber Stamping Artist Trading Cards, and I always find it inspirational on days like today when my brain doesn't work (still coughing). This arose out of something in the book and it's quite different from my usual work and I'm not even sure if I like it!

The clown stamp is by Invoke Arts, but I can't remember who makes the Latin text stamp. I struggled with the colour scheme at first because the blue and red were the same "value", but the introduction of the turquoise (also blue right?) sorted it all out.

Tomorrow I'm off to the hobbycrafts show at the National Exhibition Centre - taking my new Zelda Zimmer Frame for a walk. SO looking forward to my annual outing!!

Wow...you have risen to the blue and red challenge with pizzazz. I too really rely on books and magazines when I'm feeling creatively challenge. Bravo!
