Well the SKY IS THE LIMIT…lol… here are two really great techniques on how to create clouds on your cards IN THE BACKGROUND… so if you have images that need to overlap and that looks more realistic, you will need to cut a mask or else stamp or adhere images and then work around them … with the paint it will be a little more risky but it is do-able
I am not sure if it will work but I am also going to try to create clouds using the scallop circle as template and trying with GELLATOS and baby wipes… that’s right baby wipes…Gellatos will blend with water but baby wipes any kind will make them more bendable and very vibrant. so here is my effort with them…ok Gellatos make great blended back ground but they don’t work for this technique…they just don’t give the definition that you get with the sponge and stamp pad ink…that’s my favorite…. I am not very good with the watercolor either….
This was mine using a large scallop circle…
Ha…those dark spots are not on my paper but I apparently need to clean my scanner top…lol….
In any case these are two great ways to add clouds….ie sky to your background which helps anchor your images to the page…. depending on your image..( if its solid and you are going to stamp darker) you might not need to do the masking ..but this bunny was an open image so she needed to mask it so that the clouds were not on top of the bunny with the painting one she didn’t make just made sure she didn’t go over the bunny but just up to him…. important things to remember…
Now it’s just my opinion but I would also not have such a busy background behind the image with clouds… I would have it be more a solid color so that it doesn’t draw your eye away from the clouds and bunny trying to figure out what else is there…or if you were going to use a patterned background layer I would have it be all the same not…this is just to distracting for me….
I think I may have told you that I am in an International Envelope Exchange and so I thought I’d share some of the envelopes that I have received…It just started in FEB of this year so some of these are from previous years….
