Clown Face Tutorial

Hello everyone! It's my day to post at Peachy Keen and I am sharing a tutorial with you today.
These NEW Clowning Around Faces are so fun and I am going to share with you how I added the face with the large glasses to my Sneak Peek die cut project last week. For this project I am working with the Clowning Around 1 1/8 Inch Faces

The reason I am sharing this technique is that the face stamp is bigger than the die cut head. (See example 1 in photo below)  In order to get the full effect of this super cute face, you have to be a little futsy with it. 

Here is a picture of the supplies I used. I choose to color my faces with Copic Markers, but you can accomplish the same look with using flesh colored cardstock.

Clown (head)- Cute Little Circus
X-Acto Knife
Copic Markers- E51 Milky White, E21 Baby Skin Pink, and R20 Blush
Scissors and piece of white paper

As you can see from the picture below, the stamped face goes over the sides of the die cut face. So you will stamp the face onto the die cut head centering it and also the full face onto a piece of white paper.

Next you are going to cut out the center of the eyeglasses with an X-Acto Knife going around the nose also. After the centers are cut out, then you will cut out around the outside with scissors. You are then left with the pair of glasses and nose.
* A Tip: After the glasses are cut out, you might be able to see a little white around the edges. I take a black marker and run it around the inside edges to cover any white showing through. Just be careful around the nose.

I colored my face with Copic markers and then glued the glasses over the top of your stamped image. I also use a white gel pen to add the highlights to insides of the glasses, his freckles, and nose highlight. 
And there you have it! It's all ready to be added to your die cut clown. Super cute and well worth the little bit of extra time it takes to do this.
