Jesters, Clowns and Masquerades Tuesday Taggers

Our Theme at Tuesday Taggers this week is Jesters and Masquerade Balls. This was one of those themes that I wasn't sure what I was going to do as I didn't have any stamps for my main image. I made a background with my Diamond stamp from Crafty Individuals, a Kaleidacolor Calypso ink pad and a brayer. After that I started looking on the internet and found this fabulous sketch of a jester on Deviant Art. You can see the original sketch by Sutinen here. I felt that if I coloured him it would be a bit OTT, so just outlined him in pastel blue promarker and left him black and white. Thanks for looking and do hope you'll join in this week!
