Clouds for the First Time!


I've been seeing all these fund cards with clouds in the background and wondering "how on earth did they do that". Well, my fellow DT member and blogging friend Shannon was kind enough to share with me a tutorial on how she did hers. Thanks again, Shannon.

This card is my first attempt at making clouds so please keep that in mind. It's also my first time working with "Courageous Carl"as well.

"Courageous Carl" by Crissy Armstrong available at Whismy Stamps. "smile" sentiment from Verve.



This card was inspired by the Craft Your Passion Challenge #66: Just For You- create a general card for anyone. I'm going to send this card to my niece. She's going through some growing pains with her family right now. You know that time in your life when you have graduated from high school so technically, you are an adult but, you live under your parent's roof and you have to abide by their rules? I remember it well and that's what she's going through at the moment.

Sunday's With Crissy is having a Design Team Call! Crissy designed the "Courageous Carl" image I used on my card today.  You can read all about the details and apply by clicking the link below.

  2. You did brilliantly with the clouds - would never have known you'd not tried the technique before. I've tried to make clouds and mine came out too heavy - yours make a perfect background for Carl. Good luck with the DT call and thanks for your kind comments about my frog entry :-D

  3. The clouds are spectacular! The coloring is wonderful. I like how the "L" in the sentiment is much higher and more dramatic than the other letters.
