Sasayaki Glitte Stamps - Youtube Tutorial Clouds

Hello, crafty friends!!

Today I wanted to share how I create my clouds background.  I cannot claim this to be my own technique since many other crafters do it this way, but I wanted to create this video to show you how I do it!

Distress Ink
Clouds Background

These are some of the cards where I have used this technique.

I created the template as I mentioned in the video from a picture I saw online and I printed it onto cardstock an cut it to make it.  It works great!

I hope this technique helps you!  You can use any drawing of clouds you like!

As always, keep getting crafty!!
