I'm doing an A Muse Studio workshop today and one of the sets we will be using to make a card is the Under the Big Top circus set. I've used the elephant a lot, the ticket several times and the high wire lady a couple of times (turning her into a ballerina). I went looking for some ideas to inspire me and I came across Devon's blog, Paper is My Passion. I love the bright bold colors she used in her card, and the touch of adding a baker's twine bow to the balloon tied to the elephant's tail was brilliant. I used her card as a jumping off point to create these guys.
I used the same color scheme for all three cards and nary a piece of patterned paper in sight (I may have to go lie down now to stop the twitching). The colors are blueberry, cherry, and papaya which sounds like an excellent snack to me.
