Come Fly ATS Stamp and Cloud Background Mini Tutorial

Fun Stampers Journey has this really cute ATS stamp set called Come Fly AT-0117 that is retiring (only available while supplies last).   I made two cards using this stamp set.   One was for friends' engagement and the other to use as a birthday card.

The stamp set comes with 5 stamps:   Sea plane, banner, Missing You, Happy Birthday, and Come fly with me.  I hand printed the couple's names on the banner.  The Happy Birthday was done with one of the stamps in the set.

I set the plane and the banner on a clear block to stamp at one time.   Ink up the stamps and stamped on Whip Cream Card Stock.   Then fancy cut around the stamped image.   I did hand draw in a short mark from the plane to the banner.  Then added in Journey Foam Squares to the back before adding to my cloud background.  

I created my own background clouds using a scallop circle, a Fusion Ink Sponge, and the Blue Lagoon Ink Pad.

Punch out a 2" Scallop Circle
Ink the end of your Fusion Ink Sponge with Blue Lagoon Ink Pad (or color of your choice)
Place scallop circle on the Whip Cream Card Stock and sponge the edges of part of it.  
Re-position the scallop circle and repeat.   
Fill in as much or as little as you would like.

For the clouds, there is no right or wrong way.  Just keeping adding in until you have them the way you want them.   You could add in other colors too to change the look. 
Fusion Ink Sponges come 3 to a pack.   I cut mine into 4 or 6 pieces to use. 
Journey Foam Squares: 
     Small:   1/4"   308 to a package
     Medium:  1/2"  126 to package
