Default DEC11VSNMINI5 ~ Friday, November 11th ~ 9:00pm EST ~ Head In The Clouds

Title: Head In The Clouds
Hostess: Theresa aka Misstreez
Keyword: DEC11VSNMINI5
Day/Date: Friday, November 11th
Time: 9:00pm EST

One year we took our children to the snow for a day trip. It was a lovely pleasant drive thru the valleys to get to the base of the mountain. Then we started our ascent. UP UP UP we went. And when we got to the top we could hardly see but 200m (220 yards) in front of us. We were way up in the CLOUDS.

Tonight's challenge is to make a card featuring CLOUDS. The CLOUDS can be stamped, die cut, inked with masks or stencils, patterned paper, or even hand made. So get your head into the CLOUDS and show us where your imagination takes you.

VIEW THE GALLERY FOR THIS CHALLENGE HERE

UPLOADING INSTRUCTIONS:

1. ALL VSN CREATIONS MUST BE UPLOADED BY 10:00 PM EST ON Monday November 14.
2. You have 45 minutes to complete the challenge.
3. Please remember to put in the correct keyword, DEC11VSNMINI5 , when uploading your image. Copying and pasting the challenge keyword is recommended to avoid typos.

It is also highly recommended that you post a link to your creation in this chat thread to be sure you layout is seen.

If any of you have any cloud cards in your galleries I'd love to be able to add them as attachments to my OP. I'm looking for a couple of different styles of clouds. Stamped clouds, die cut clouds, sponged clouds (think scalloped circles), embossed clouds (I think I saw one of these somewhere), hand cut, etc.

I'll be having a good hunt around this week for some inspiration, but if you happen to stumble across something in the meantime I'd love to see it too.

Really? I wouldn't know. I know hail clouds have a paricular look and colour, so I suppose snow clouds would have thier own look too.

I finished my sample for your challenge, and I'll try to get a thumbnail put into this thread in the next couple of days. Trouble is, the rain has arrived and I really want to get a good shot in natural light, so, hmm.

I very nearly went over the time limit fussing around with my clouds, so it is a rather plain card other than the image panel!

WOW. That is so cool. I was wondering if there was a card anywhere made with cotton wool clouds, and you my dear friend went and made one. LOL.

The sky is sponged onto glossy cardstock, then I stamped the trees. For the clouds I used white craft ink (and a hint of yellow). I applied it with a cotton swab (a wide one, like for applying makeup). I was trying to create cirrus clouds.

Thanks, for making a great card for my gallery. Looks like we'll be getting a variety of cloud styles happening with this challenge.

1. Scratch that.

2. I did a time conversion check this morning and I still get the same time. I thought it might change with the resetting of some US clocks.

3. Still need to add a link to my gallery.

4. Check

5. Did my final proofread.

6. Made cards for three other challenges. Need to take photos this afternoon.

Just checking in to see if I can work ahead for the Mini VSN.

I like to mask clouds, airbrush the sky and then give them more dimension with Copic Markers.

I had some pretty cloud DSP that I wanted to use for my challenge. I used a piece of it for the background and then cut out some of the clouds for the frame.
