A Feather In Your Cap


Hi everyone!  It's Taylor here today :) Have you seen the new Morehead Collection at Crafter's Companion?  Eeeks!!! I knew immediately I'd be coloring this darling clown from the Sweety set.  How cute is he?  I know, I know - it could be a girl. But my two year old son's hair looks just like this (except his is white-blonde), so to me it's a boy!

I stamped this great clear stamp using Memento Tuxedo Black ink, on Ultra Smooth White card stock. Then I got out my Spectrum Noir markers and colored this little guy up.  Here's a list of the colors I used:

Yellows: GB7, GB6, GB5, GB4, GB2
Purples: PL4, PL2. PL1
Hair: B1, EB3, BG3
Dog: EB2, EB1
Outline: BG2

I was sitting at my craft table looking at my completed image, thinking how fun it would be if I could make the ball on top of his hat all poofy.  Then my daughter sprinted to her room, and returned triumphantly with this feather - perfect!  I used my craft knife to slice a small opening at the tip of the hat, and slid the bottom of the feather in to it.  Voila - the feather is literally coming out of the top of his hat!
