Peter the Clown

It's time for another Softpencil Thursday! This week the DT got to work with this cute set called Peter with His Clothes. It comes with Peter (already wearing one outfit), three full outfits, two hats, and two pets! Here's what I came up with:

PeterClothes1
As soon as I looked at this outfit, I thought it was meant to be pajamas, but I saw a clown costume! Our design element this week is "about you" which means our favorite colors, techniques, etc.. My fave techniques are paper piecing, cutting out images and popping them up, sewing on my cards, and lightly distressing the edges of panels. I also used a fave embellishment (ribbon) and coloring medium (Copics).

Little details: I added a 1/8" hole punch for his clown nose and flocked the little top of his hat!

I used a Limelight sketch (I know it's late, but I really liked the sketch so I used it anyway!), and also met the requirements for the Kaboodle Doodles Challenge #14 - 1 solid cardstock, 2 patterned papers, 3 embellishments, and use a digital image. This challenge is being sponsored by Softpencil so I had to play! I hope you like it and TFL!

Other materials used: patterned paper - My Mind's Eye; sentiment - Your Next Stamp (Happy Days Mermaid set).
