Wednesday Trends - Sponging a Scene

Remember this card from the TSG171 Sketch Challenge earlier in the week? Well you are in for a treat today! It's my Trendsetter week so it was my turn to put together a trend or tutorial for you, so I chose a tutorial...a video tutorial *insert oooh's and ahhhhh's here* :D

Well folks, it's been a few years since I made any sort of video tutorial and I was a little nervous but here goes and try and not laugh me out of the building, 'Kay? ;)

So, what did you think? Think that you can create something like this yourselves? I can assure you that it is very easy and it goes quick once you get started! After the tutorial was shot, I did add a little bit of shading under my crab and some highlights with my white chalk pencil to create the waves! Easy Peasy and it's perfect for all of those images that you colour up ahead of time...just leave a little extra white space around your image and you are good to go for creating the scene of your dreams!

List of supplies for the tutorial:

Paper: 90lb Coldpress Canon Water Colour Paper
Ink:  Baja Breeze (SU), Bermuda Bay (SU), Pacific Point (SU), Not Quite Navy (SU), Creamy Caramel (SU), Ranger Distress Antique Linen
Accessories: Cloud Template, 2-Way Glue Pen, Scrap Paper, Sponge Daubers, Masking Tape
