City Crafter - On Cloud Nine


Our challenge this week at City Crafter is to add clouds to your project.  I used a Mo's Digital Pencil image and, using Silhouette studio, created sketched clouds and the sentiment.  I coloured it using alcohol markers and distress ink.

This isn't really a card - there's no back on it, as I don't intend to give it away. I will put it on my pinboard to remind me to 'go for it'.

I hope you'll come over to City Crafter, see the work of our Guest Designer Marie , and the rest of the DT, and enter your own cloudy project.
