Let's go to the Fair

Summer time reminds me of the fair and my card today is a collage of fair images.  Playing along in the Simon Says Stamp and Show Anything Goes.

The plate has this wonderful Ice Cream churn.  I got this silly idea to put the boy into the pot kind of like a jack in the box. :)

Here is the full card:

I used bits and pieces from different sets to create my Fair Collage.  (Kudzu Kafe, Country Life, Vintage Circus, Whimsical Melange, Quote and Quotables)

The background is embossed and sponged with a light blue die ink.  The rest are stamped and colored with watercolor pencils. The banner is stamped and cut out and the letters are stickers.

Thanks for stopping by!
