Happy Friday all. Have you ever looked at something and said, hmmm "how did they do that"? Well, I have been struggling with creating a sky on my cards, and I often see these really cool clouds and wonder "How did they do that". Well, I recently had a mini lesson from Mary & Peggy and it was so much easier than it looked, so i thought I would share this info with you. If you look at my last week of cards, you will notice I have gone crazy with the clouds. I love the affect!
I start of with White card stock, Bliss Blue Ink pad from SU, my Great Impression cloud maker (you can also use a scalloped oval circle and get the same affect), and a make up sponge.
You then place the cloud maker on the paper, dab your sponge in the ink pad, DAB off on a scrap paper before you start on your project. This will prevent big dark blobs of ink. Continue moving your cloud maker/scalloped oval circle around from high to low.
Sponge until you get the affect that you want. This is so easy and looks so wonderful. If you get a chance to try it out, lmk, I would love to see your project.
I hope you have a fantastic weekend! Happy creating!
