Read the Step-by-Step Guide Below:

Step 2

First, create a die cut circle. If you do not have a die cut machine, you can use a compass or a craft knife. Just make sure that you're going to achieve a perfect circle image.

Step 3

Make sure that you have your circle in the middle of the card stock.
You can achieve this by putting the positive side of the circle in the middle of your paper, then place the negative part after.
Once you have secured that the circle is at the center, you can now pull out the positive side leaving the negative part as your guide and template.

Step 4

Get a piece of scrap paper and tear it up, creating cloud shapes with it.
Don't worry about the shapes and how they look like, as long they have a shape like hills it would be just fine!

Step 5

Combining your Distress inks, slowly start building up a little bit of color by inking the edge of the torn paper into your card. Make sure that you are moving around in different directions and angles to give it variety.
As for me, I used a combination of Peacock Feathers and Iced Spruce. You can use the same colors, or you can play around with other color combinations!

Step 6

Place the negative side of the circle over the top again and print the scene this time with cloud stamps. What I did was half on and half off the circle.

You can also do looser ones, like a second or third print to add a fading effect.

Step 7

Look at how gorgeous that looks! The combination of colors makes a beautiful scene. It's like real mountains and skies on a piece of paper!

Just to give it a bit more color, you can ink up your cloud stamp with a darker color.
As for me, I used the strong archival ink color named nautical blue because the scene needs something striking just to bring it all together.

Then you can add your sentiment to the design.
I've got a happy days sentiment stamp that would look great on my card. I inked it up super well to make it stand out along the details of my layout.
