Bugaboo Tutorial Wednesday ~ Cloud Background

**This is my 2nd post for today...Please scroll down for my CAS-tastic Wednesday card**

Hi all!! It is tutorial Wednesday at Bugaboo...so today I am going to show you how to create a cloud background like the one in this card.

All you need is a scallop nestie (or a scallop punch would also work), blue ink and a dauber.

1. Use your scallop oval nestie to cut out a thick piece of cardstock for your template....

2. Lay your scallop template onto to a white piece of cardstock and use blue ink and a dauber to lightly ink around the top edge....

3. Lift up your scallop template and move it down on the white cardstock and again lightly ink around the top edge. You will want to tilt your cardstock in different directions as you go....

4. Continue moving and tilting the scallop template down the cardstock and inking lightly around the top edge until you have reached the bottom.

5. Your finished cloud background should look similar to this....
Easy peasy right? I would love to see your cards using this technique...if you create one please leave a link in my comments so I can come check it out!!

Thanks for stopping by,
