Wednesday Trends - Creating a Cloud/Sky Background

   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 you can see in the example below using the just released Scent-ational stamp set. can create an outdoor scene with a grass and cloud/sky background.  I LOVE creating sky'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!!


  1. Love your coloring...the grass, her hair, the clouds of course...

  2. Super Tutorial Miss Wendy! 8-)


  3. Thank you so much for your tutorial. I've enjoyed the one on your blog about how you colour hair, and this one is equally useful. If a picture is worth a thousand words, a video is even better!

  4. Thank you so much - I love the chalk ink and stipple brush idea - I am going out tomorrow to pick these up!!
