Harlequin Circus

Hi Everyone
It's challenge time again at Art With No Boundaries  as usual it is Anything goes . *The Bonus Round for this fortnight is called Just Clowning Around*, and we want to see this in your project.
        Well this was my first attempt at Spirelli. I have ripped and torn the background papers, stamped the harlequin pattern and embossed to give texture. I die cut the letters. Then printed the spirelli irregular oval  from  CS Designs   after several attempts and a you tube demo LOL, this is what I came up with. The Harlequin long ovals from  CS Designs   are coloured with a promarkers and prisma pencils. I used gems from my stash.  please check out the rest of the teams design they are gorgeous. I will be entering this into the following challenges  Anything but square


  1. Paula, you did a great job with the spirelli wrapping. I really like these harlequins done in black and white. The background is very distressed which I love. The whole feel is very retro. I can almost hear the circus music!

  2. Fabulous card Paula. Love it!
