Creating a Cloud/Sky Background


One of the things I'm asked most often is how I create my cloud/sky backgrounds so I thought it would make a perfect topic for my There She Goes - Wednesday's Trend feature.  Generally after I've colored an image I will "ground" it so that the image doesn't appear to be floating in mid air.   

And my favorite technique is to create an outdoor scene with a grass and cloud/sky background.  I LOVE creating sky backgrounds...it's such an fun & easy way to bring a stamped image to life!!


For my card sample, I've used a TSG favorite....Puppy Love which is PERFECT for an this technique!

Supplies you will need:
VersaMagic Aspen Mist Chalk Ink
Stippling Dry Brush
Cloud Template OR a scalloped edge punch/die

I've created a video tutorial so that you can see for yourself just how easy it is to do!!





Thanks for taking a look and I hope you will give creating a Cloud/Sky background a try!!

You make everything look SO easy, Wendy. The clouds are beautiful. I'll probably watch 15 times and still not get them right....

Thanks for the video. I have been hesitating to do this, scared to mess up but I'm gonna try this on an image I colored last night that needs a background!
