I bought two Fiskar's cloud punches about a year or so ago, and I don't think I've used them on a card yet. When I pulled them out to play this time, I remembered why.
First, I wanted to make a white-on-white card, but couldn't make it work.
Second, I used a piece of light blue card stock and tried all sorts of white paper (velvet, vellum, regular card stock, rice paper, etc) to make something interesting, and all results were...unsatisfactory.
In frustration, I pulled out a light blue Copic and scribbled a sky, plopped two clouds on it, added a sentiment and a little bling, and thought, "Well, it's not bad. Not great, either, but not bad."
Some days, I am willing to be happy with a "good enough for government work" sort of accomplishment. How about you?
BTW, anyone want to buy these two cloud punches? It think I'm done with them!
