Charlie the Clown KLM Designs

KLM Designs is having a DT call and I am contemplating applying. They are offering a free digital image and I like to try to use a companies stamps when applying if I can. What do you think?

Isn't Charlie cute holding the little blue bird? This was so fun to color. I added polka dots to the vest with a Copic micro pen .01. The pen was in the goodie bag of copic supplies when I took the Copic Certification class. I love that pen and use it all the time to do things just like this :) That being said, I colored the digital image with copic markers.

I can see myself sending this card to someone who needed a smiley card (one that makes everybody smile), a kids birthday card, or Just Because card.

I sponged the edge of the main image with Tim Holtz distress ink in Tattered Burlap and Broken China. I bought a K and Company matt stack at Michael's yesterday and found this really neat diagonal check paper that matched the colors perfectly. I sponged the edge of that with the tattered burlap distress ink also. I used a second piece of the double sided matt paper and used the backside for the final piece of dp. I had made two cards without any sponging so I was having withdrawals :)

I tied a piece of beige twill tape (it came on a bundle of washclothes that I bought at Target)and tied a bow knot on the far right side. I dug through my antique white buttons and found two that I liked with the dp and tied the brown checked ribbon through the button holes.

Thanks for looking and have a good rest of your day.
