Vintage Circus Poster

I love this background image from Artistic Outpost's Vintage Circus plate. While I think it makes an exquisite background, it has such a great interplay of images and a wonderful energy all its own that I decided to make it my focal image.

I used the Chalk Lines technique from the latest issue of the Technique Junkie newsletter.

Cardstock: Old Olive and Whisper White (Stampin Up)
Ink: Dark Cocoa (Memento)
Chalk: Old Olive, More Mustard and Bravo Burgundy (Stampin Up)
Sealant: hairspray - yup, I was too lazy today to dig out my sealant!

Have a fabulous day and think about what might have been had you really run off to the circus when you were a child!
