Since I am still getting my groove back I decided to do a remake of an earlier tutorial that I did on Making Clouds. I have so many compliments on my clouds and also still get lots of requests for how I make them so I thought it would be fun to re-visit this easy technique.
For today's tutorial I'm using the super fun Hula Lili!
The first thing I do is stamp my image and then mask it. For those new to masking it's super simple, just stamp your image on a post-it note and cut out-voila', a mask. I save my masks so that if I need to mask the same image in the future, I save a step!
I'm trying something a bit new today. Normally I use a stencil I've had for years but since I don't think it's available anymore I decided to use some die cuts--these clouds are from Taylored Expressions--but many companies make cloud dies for you to use. Or you could even cut your own out!
I decide where to start the cloud line and place the cloud diecuts there. Once I have them where I want them, then I sponge on a darker blue color--I'm using SU Marina Mist but you can use whatever you have/like.
You could also use other colors to make different skies. The possibilities are endless!!
From here I color up my image and finish the card. Hope this gives you an idea on how to add some clouds to your images!!
