Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge - June Designer Drafts

Hello there!  Happy Sunday!  It's time for another Paper Smooches SPARKS Challenge, and it's Designer Drafts Week!  This week, our challenge is based on this sketch:

I just got the Enjoy the Show stamp set and I could not resist inking up that adorable clown!  Goodness, he is SO cute, and SO fun to color!!  I started with a piece of white cardstock, and though it is hard to see in the photo, I used light grey ink and the Bubbles stencil by Tim Holtz to add some interest to the background.  Then, I added a piece of light grey cardstock for my clown to stand on, and a strip of fun chevron patterned paper to the left side of the panel.  For the juggling balls, I cut 5 circles using a 1/2" circle punch from white cardstock and then colored them with Copic markers to coordinate with the clown's outfit.  Don't you just love his cute paper pieced polka dot pants?  I added "shine" marks to the juggling balls using a white gel pen and then adhered them with foam squares.  The clown was also popped up with some foam tape before I added a sentiment from the Good Gab stamp set.

What's Up?
