I had a hard time deciding what topic label to put on this series. I went with a generic label as so many techniques were used.
First I used the clouds embossing folder on glossy cardstock and went over the whole thing with distress ink. When that was dry I used Picket Fence Distress Stain on the clouds only to lighten them. I tore a green patterned paper to create a grassy area and you might recognize those sheep and rainbow from a previous card. I added the vellum sun sticker this time and a clear text sticker on the ground.
Then I used the clouds folder to emboss some waxed paper and made some waxed paper backgrounds. I used Distress Ink to color it and then embossed the background. Finally, I used Picket Fence Distress Stain on the raised clouds. The torn ground is the setting for a clear nest sticker and a chipboard bird. The sky is filled with clear sticker text.
This one uses the reverse of the waxed paper background so embossing it makes the clouds indented. In trying to rework this I inked after using the white distress stain so they now are light blue. Ah well. I tore the ground and added peel-off stickers of an outline deer, backed with designer paper, and some trees. The text in the ground is a clear SRM sticker.
This started out the same size as the rest of them but I messed it up over and over and over and kept hacking away the ratty bits until this is all that was left! I had already added the peel-off deer and trees so I just framed it out and mounted it landscape on plain white cardstock. It was very plain so I added gold peel-off borders and corners. Much better, but the ground was so much larger that I went looking for a large text sticker. I actually used a combination of stickers to create the text.
Now I can get my head out of the clouds and go onto another project.
