Cloud slumber

Add Texture, Anything goes 254

I didn't want a pretty-pretty baby card and thought this worked well.  I coloured the image with Reno pens.  I found the largest cloud used upside down fitted under the baby if I sliced open the drape at the RHS.  I covered the largest cloud in the muslin so it puffed and wrinkled (who says clouds don't have wrinkles?), then diecut a frame from muslin - it is sufficiently sheer that it softens the outline of the picture but accentuates the shape.  The other clouds I covered with glass beads for sparkle, and made a strip of muslin for the bow.  I like the effect of the muslin and will try again it in other ways... maybe pleated or torn or inked?
