Under the Big Top

 I was lucky enough to get my name in for Kimberly of Art Joy Stuff Tuesday Trading Card Swap last week.  Her theme was Join the Circus and this is my take on it. 
 Hand scrunched yellow satin, died puffy thing and a paperclay star are what I think really makes this piece. 
One of the things that are harder to see is the enhanced background I did.  Decorative paper stamped with a swirl that I coated in Tim Holtz green distress glitter (makes it look vintage in my opinion) and there is a ticket stub behind the clowns head.  

 And guess what!  I'm going to be selling those fabulous stars in my etsy store soon.
 
Want to get some before anyone else? Leave me a comment let me know what colors you want and I'll make them for you right away! Right now I have gold, red, blue, green and silver (still working on black and white) and they are all shimmery!
