Rubbernecker New Release Preview Day 1 - Laughter

Welcome dear stampers to another Rubbernecker Stamps PREVIEW!!  Rubbernecker will be releasing more NEW STAMPS on Tuesday 3/29/11.  To get you  ready for these BEAUTIFUL new stamps, we are having TWO days of PREVIEWS!!  Welcome to DAY ONE!! 

You will want to visit EVERY one of the FABULOUS design team participants and leave a comment, for on ONE of our blogs, is a chance to win a $15 Rubbernecker Stamps gift certificate!   You can find the complete list of today’s participants and more ways to win on the RUBBERNECKER BLOG!

Today I'm previewing one of the clowns from the Clowns + Crowns set #528 as well as a sentiment from the Garden Shrub set #560.
 
I love this funny little vintage clown - I dotted his pants with a Copic marker as well as coloring his shirt, socks and big shoes!  I thought this sentiment matched him perfectly - who doesn't laugh when they see a clown!?!  I cut the sentiment with a Labels 14 Nestability and sponged it before taking it out of the die.  My fun checkered paper is from October Afternoon/Modern Homemaker.  The clown is cut with a circle Nestability that I again sponged before removing it from the die -  then framed with a Pinking Circle Nestie.
 
I finished off my card by tying the wrinkled seam tape ribbon around the bottom.  Both the image and the sentiment are popped up on foam tape.
 
You will find the list of all the Design Team members showing previews today on the Rubbernecker Blog!  as well as details on 3 ways to win some stamps!
