Triple Threat Circus Train!

Multitasking is the word for today!

This card is for The Paper Players #91 (CAS watercoloring), The Friday Mashup #54 (Muppet colors + a kids card), and Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge 237

For the Friday Mashup part, I chose to use the colors of the muppet Gonzo and then chose this fun, old Circus Train stamp set to go with it.  I watercolored the train cars (which incorporates The Paper Players challenge) after I used my Stamp-a-ma-jig to position them.  I embossed the train using black EP.
 I used the Mojo Monday sketch and interpreted it a little "loosely".  I didn't use four seperate circles, but I did use four separate images. :)
I kept it fairly simple (again for The Paper Players), just adding a couple borders to the main image and enhancing the sentiment a bit by popping up the word BEST with a pop-dot.
Stamps: Circus Train, Perfect Words
Paper: Island Indigo, Real Red, Crushed Curry, White
Ink: VersaMark
Accessories: watercolor pencils, Blender Pen, Scallop Border punch, Dotted Scallop Border punch
Thanks for taking a peek!
