spiffy scooters and floating clouds

First let me say…I {heart} this set!  It’s called Spiffy Scooters (even the name is cute).  I had so much fun with it!  Kim Hughes really rocked the scooters with this one.  

My first thoughts with this set were to make a tent card with the scooter on the top and also make the clouds “floating” in the sky with strips of acetate.  It turned out pretty much how I envisioned except the scooter in my mind was mostly pink.  Maybe next time!

It may be difficult to see but I used strips of 10 mil acetate from Hobby lobby to sandwich between the clouds (each cloud is 2 layers) and the card base / layer.  I used heavy white cardstock so I wanted a heavier acetate to hold the weight of the clouds & sun.

Here’s a side view… 

I also used a tiny strip of acetate to stamp the flag “pole” with Stazon ink.  Then I paper pieced the flag onto the acetate.

The only thing I wish I had added were some puffs of smoke behind the scooter. 

Have a great day!  We’re having yet another rainy week.
