Clown Alert On Hambo Hoedown Challenge!


It's time for a POLKA at the Hoedown!
POLKA DOTS, that is!
Today's challenge is brought to you by CLOWN SHOES:


This week at Hambo, they have given us the dual challenge of using Polka Dots and the Clown Shoes digital image, which includes 4 great sentiments that can be used in various ways.  Remember that you don't have to this image to enter the challenge- But they do require that a Hambo Image only images be used and you can use ANY of those for your Polka Dot creation. 
I chose to use this shoe template that I had-makes it look like a Converse tennis shoe with that circle on the ankle.  I mounted the polka dot paper onto heavier cardstock as I was putting in eyelets in the bottom (air vents-blast from the past eh?) and for the shoe lace (this is actually woven between the back and front layer) and needed the extra strength. Then copic colored the clown and mounted the sentiment as a "sign" that the clown was holding.  
Hope you can join in all the fun at the Hambo Hoedown and if you make the deadline of Monday, July 30, at 10:00 PM CST**** then you will get a free digi to use on the next challenge!  Great way to expand your digi library with great images!  Thanks for looking ~ Carolyn

    1. Lyn I'm glad you liked it! I think I ended up with the shoe about 5 x 7 so that the clown would be proportioned right? ALWAYS good to put a smile on your face!!
