Welcome back to The Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge! We have been on a short break, but back for March 2023!
I started with this cute cute image from Mo's Digital Pencil called MOMO. How darling is he?
I love stencils and this one in particular! It is called Big Top and is created by the genius of  Mary Kay DelaFuente the owner of A Colorful Life Designs. I felt these 2 were a match made in you agree?
I resized the image and printed on regular copy paper until I knew it fit into the Big Top. Then I printed the image onto Distress Ink Tim Holtz Watercolor Card Stock with a laser printer. To color this cutie, I used Daniel Smith 238 Dot Watercolor Set. For the flesh color I always use my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Marker in Flesh Colour and Pale Pink.
Here is the image (above) of the Big Top Stencil which is a 2 part stencil. The center part is a separate piece and I used it to mask MOMO while I ink blended. 
A light spray of Pixie Spray, was necessary so that the stencil would adhere well to the paper. For ink blending I used Distress Ink Candied Apple and a touch of Aged Mahogany around the edges.
The sentiment is from Spellbinders' It's Party Time stamp set. I've used this so many times lately and I thought it just fit the bill for this card. 
Thanks for joining me today. We'd love to see you at The Happy Little Stampers Stencil Challenge. Come join in!
