Hello Everyone & Help Please

Hi Everyone, I've been reading posts on here for the past 12 months or so and find it a great site. I wondered if anyone could tell me how to do the following:
I want to make one image take on a specific shape, but not just a clipping path where the original sits under the mask. So for example if I have a photo of a white fluffy cloud and i want it to take on a certain shape of say a heart or a car, but using the whole cloud, so all the edges will bend/distort as necessary to take on that shape. I'm sure it's fairly simple but i can't figure it out.
Any ideas would be great
Cheers
Graham

Re: Hello Everyone & Help Please

Thanks for the quick responses.
Ray- I haven't got any examples yet, my idea is to photograph some cloud formations, then create a cloud in the shape of the outline of the UK, as it's always cloudy!! So Kerry's link is a great tutorial which if I read it in more detail may well do the trick, but that's what I'm after creating. So keep the ideas coming.
Cheers for now
Graham.
