Red, White, & Aqua Clown

Happy Tuesday!!!
I am sharing with you today a cute little card.  I had so much fun making this. 
I used the Peachy Keen Stamp June SOTM set for the cute little clown.  He was stamped onto Xpress Blending card, and colored with Copics
Face - E0000, E000, E00, E11, E21
Shirts/Shoes/Eyes/Tie/Highlight - BG10, BG13, BG15, BG18
Clothes/Shoes/Ticket - R22, R24, R27, R29, R59 
Hair - R32, R35, R37, R39
The inspiration for the colors of the clown was Timeless Twine June Color Challenge

For the base of the card, I used Samantha Walker's Carousel card file from the Silhouette store. 
 The file has a carousel horse in the middle of the front image.  I modified the file so that my clown would be the focus.  I popped the red tent piece on foam tape...this added a bit of dimension and made the clown more of a focal point. 
To highlight his shoes, I accented them with a turquoise Copic Spica pen. 
One of my favorite things to do is add glossy accents to the glasses of my images.  So realistic and adds just a bit of fun. 

The red cardstock image was outlined with a clear Copic Spica Pen, plus the red polka dots on the clown's shirt. 
To give the card a more finished appearance, I outlines the front with Firecracker Twine from my stash.
