Little Miss Muffet Guest Designer #2

     A huge thank you to Barbara at Little Miss Muffet Challenges for letting me guest design for her a second week.  :-) 
     I knew what I wanted to do with this stamp, but getting it there was another thing.  LOL  The challenge at Little Miss Muffet is clouds.  I started off trying to do them with watercolor.  NOT!  Annika I bow to you, but I could not get mine to look like yours--at all!  Secondly I tried with Copics, but just didn't like the outcome so I decided to try distress inks and finally I was happy with it.
     I found an image of a rock climber online and did a rough sketch out of Agent Cupcakes "mountain".  It's colored with Copics and could definitely have been improved upon.  It was part of the image I colored the clouds with Copics on so I just cut away the cloud part and attached it over the distress ink clouds.  Agent Cupcake is also cut out and raised on pop dots.  I used some hemp cord to attach over the  rope part of the image.  Thought it was a fun little extra.
     I used my ancient Fiskar embossing plates for the braided texture on the bottom half of the card.  The little sign is a digi freebie I got from Lily's Art Creations last year.  I just printed it out at the size I needed, colored it with Copics, printed out my sentiment on the computer, cut it apart, and glued it onto the sign.
     There are tons of ways to make clouds on your cards so grab the supplies you need for your style clouds and come join in the fun at Little Miss Muffet Challenge.
