Crea-Sandra's Crafty Tutorial World - Making clouds behind a colored image

Hi all!

Today I would like to show you how to make a background of clouds behind your colored image.

Supplies:
Image from Robyn's Fetish - Play Ball (printed twice)
Removable adhesive
Distress Ink Tumbled Glass
Paint Brush
Cloud template. I used a die from MFT, but you could also hand draw it)
Coloring medium of your choice ( I used Copic Markers)
Other supplies to finish your card, like papers and embellishments


Color one of your images the way you want.
Copic Markers used:
Skin: E00, E11, E13
Hair and bat: E23, E25, E27
Clothes: W00, W0, W2, W5
BG72, BG75, BG78
R24, R27, R29
Grass: YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, YG99



This is how my colored image looks. Also make sure you cut down your paper to the size you want to use on your project.



Take your second image and cut it out. If there are any parts that have to be cut out (like between the legs), it is the easiest to do this first. 



Trim your image, and coat the back with a removable adhesive.



Mask off your image by covering it with the second image. As you can see the grass ins't covered but that is no problem at all.



Cut your cloud template.



Take your template and put it on your image. Always start from the bottom and work upwards. Take your brush and pick up some ink.



Start sponging by tapping your brush along the edge of your cloud template.



This is how the first part looks. It is quite hard to see now because there is not so much ink, but the further you go, the better you can see. 



Take your template a little bit higher, and sponge again with your brush. Always pick up ink before starting sponging.
Your template is not symmetric, neither are clouds. Take another part of the template, or put your template on a slight angle for different shapes.
Always make sure you do small sections, so the first part I did was the lower left side, below the bat. Once that area is finished you can start with a new area.



Start sponging in the new section, and just start at the lowest point and work your way up.



Now the complete left side is finished, except the part above his hat. You always have to start at the bottom, so now we are starting in the lower right area.



This is the finished piece.



Gently peel off your mask.



Here is how the finished image looks. Quite nice, right?



Here's my finished card.


This was my tutorial, I hope you like it. It is an easy way to give something more to your colored image.

See you next time!
