Bug A Boo Stamps New Release

Today is New Release day at Bug A Boo Stamps!  This cute little clown is part of the new release and I also made her for our Mini Challenge at Catch The Bug, the challenge is a Birthday theme with bling!

Oh bling!  Can we talk about glitter?!  Glitter kind of reminds me of coconut.  Once you've used it, it doesn't go away.  I make cards at the kitchen table so every family member will come in contact with the glitter I spilled today!  
My little clown girl is colored with Copic markers T5, T3, T2, T1, E00, E000, R02, YG13, YG17, RV02, RV04, RV09, E31, E44, E47, E49.  The layout was a sketch that isn't recognizable anymore, it's been through a lot!  The pink paper is Papertrey Ink Raspberry Fizz, the polka dotted paper is Raspberry Fizz I put through the printer, dies used are PTI's ric rac and a couple of old Stampin' Up! Oval punches.  To get the glitter to stick to the polka dots on her suit I used Crystal Lacquer and Stampin' Up! Dazzling Diamonds glitter.  

And now... more about that challenge!

Wonderful... so bright & cheery. I checked Jodie's blog today & thought the little clown was so cute. I never buy bright paper like that & probably wouldn't know what to do with it if I did but your card is dynomite!
