Hi, TSG Crafty Peeps!
It's Wendy here with you and I'm SO excited to be this weeks Trendsetter!!
Today I'm going to share how I create my cloud backgrounds after coloring a stamped image. Generally after I've colored an image I will "ground" it so that the image doesn't appear to be floating in mid air. One option is to create a simple grounding shadow...as you can see in the example below using the just released Scent-ational stamp set.
OR....you can 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!!
