I've used Mustard Seed distress stain for the background. I stamped one of the Circus dogs and the podium from Lost Coast onto card and cut out and coloured with watercolours. The yellow background is stamped with blue chalk ink and the Whimsical Melange set from Artistic Outpost. the flowers are from another Artistic Outpost set Serenity. I stamped these onto card, cut out and coloured in. Finally edged with some chalk ink.
