A couple of kiddos and some clouds..

The VLVS! DT has the pleasure of working with some Creative Paperclay® this month (Available @ VLVS! HERE) and I chose to turn mine into clouds! But first.. I had to start out with a VLVS! Stamp..

I picked this stamp:

It's so sweet and gentle! Then I grabbed my Memento Tuxedo black ink, my VLVS! Ultra High Gloss Embossing Powder.. and some gorgeous BoBunny patterned paper. I'm also a huge fan of recycling.. so I pulled out some packaging cardboard to my card base and some corrugated cardboard to make my stamp stand out. I stamped the image, doused in powder and heated. Then I cut to size all my pieces.. did a little distressing.. both with scissors and vintage photo distress ink. I got out my Miracle tape and began setting things in place!

I shaped my Creative PaperClay® and let dry.. then I went over it with Picket Fence distress stain.. sponged it with vintage photo distress ink and ran the stamp pad along the edges!! Last.. I adorned my card with a piece of vintage lace, some cream colored pearls, a butterfly wing and a tim holtz charm and my handmade clouds!

As a final step to make things "flow" I went arond some extra edges with distress stain in picket fence. Love the effect :D
