Deconstructed Sketch #13

Good morning! I have a fun card to share with you today using some new stamps from TE. I love these little circus stamps, and envision making so many little boy and girl birthday cards with them! This is the first of many to come, I'm sure.


I stamped the clown in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored him with my copics. I am seriously in love with my copics right now. Something about coloring is incredibly therapeutic, lol! To make the juggling balls different colors, I sponged on different inks. The sentiment was stamped twice, cut out and popped up. It's really a pretty simple card.

The back to school shopping has officially begun. It's hard to believe that I'm heading back in just a few weeks. But something about the shopping make the excitement creep back in. I always look forward to the beginning of a new year. So full of potential. Plus, I don't have to move classrooms this year (first time in 3 years!), which is going to make the job of setting up so much simpler!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Fabulous take on this sketch, Kristina. Love all the bright colours and you have coloured that image fabulously! Wonderful card!

    We have had such a busy summer that I'm just now starting my BTS shopping and have thought of all my teacher friends gearing up to set their classrooms up. Sooooo glad you get to stay put this year - yeah!!

    Have a match to Jamie and Claire now too. Books by Sara Donati - Into the Wilderness series is fabulous.
