Craft Consortium Circus Train Card

Hello, today I have a concertina style card to share with you that uses the Circus Collection from Craft Consortium along with a few cutting files from the Silhouette Store.

I started by stamping the images from the Craft Consortium Circus Stamp sets with Desert Sand Memento Ink onto smooth white card. A combination of Zig Real Brush Pens and Arteza Real Brush Markers to colour the images. A white gel pen was also used to add highlights before the images were cut out. A selection of images from the Craft Consortium 12 x 12 Paper Pad were also cut out for embellishing.
The card bases were cut using Buff Smooth Card Stock from The Papermill Direct using my Silhouette Portrait. The patterned papers used on the train are also from the Circus 12 x 12. I also used different types and colours of card from the Mega Box of Offcuts that are available from The Papermill Direct to cut the embelishing details of the train. The train was assembled with everything adhered flat using Tonic Craft Tacky Glue for an extra strong bond.
I hope you like this card and thanks for visiting.
