A Fluffy Cloud Cradle

Greetings and welcome to the Guild Hall. Today the Lady Commander of Copics and I spent the day in Tadpole Pond helping Frogfucious gather the remaining paintbrush crop before the impending snow storm hit. As I stood next to the river that had yet to freeze over, picking the mature paintbrush bushels, I saw something floating towards us. It was difficult to see, but as it neared us I could tell it was a baby floating on a cloud. We couldn’t very well leave it floating downstream so I waded into the water to retrieve the cloud with the sleeping child. 

It’s a new month and time for a new challenge at Just Some Lines. Come play in our November Challenge and make a craft with at least three different embellishments and a Just Some Lines image for your chance to win!

I started this card by colouring the Just Some Lines “Sweet Dreams Baby Fairy” image using Distress Markers and my Hydra Brush. I then added some sparkles to the wings, earning myself +77 glittery exp points and leveling up one shiny level. The sentiment I stamped using the My Craft Spot “New Arrivals” set.

I used that same set on the inside to stamp the inner sentiment.

I stamped some light blue stars on the envelope using the Lawn Fawn “Summertime Charm” and “Winter in the Park” sets.


This card will sleep like a baby in the following challenges:
The Corrosive Challenge #186: Tic-Tac-Toe (patterned paper, image, sentiment)

Once the boy was safely ashore, the cloud he was on disappeared. Frogfucious insisted on raising the child as his own, naming him Mallow. I had a sneaking suspicion that the baby had come from Nimbusland, but why he was sent away on a cloud was a mystery.
