Clouds of Snow

Tuesday, 27 October 2020


It is time for Watercolour Wednesday and this week we are creating clouds. You can find the video for this challenge here.

To start, I am using Arches 140lb. cold press watercolour paper and Daniel Smith Prussian Blue watercolour. I framed the card front by taping off, then applied the wash of Prussian Blue, getting lighter towards the bottom.


I used tissue to do my clouds, waiting about 30 seconds between doing the wash and lifting with the tissue. I then added texture with Bleed Proof watercolour and softened some of the edges. For the tiny clouds I waited until my background was completely dry then took a damp brush and lifted the colour ro create slightly darker tiny clouds.


Once the piece was completely dry in my mini Misti I inked up my stamp with VersaFine Clair Ink in Paradise, doing several passes to get a good impression. The stamp does have a snow line base to it, but I did not want it as it would bring the trees up to high for my clouds.


 As this is a sample for the clouds, I did not stamp a sentiment on the front. I probably will use it for a winter snow day card, so a sentiment in that theme is what I will use.


Thank you for joining me today. I hope you have enjoyed this card, and I hope you will give watercolour a try. It is addicting, trust me.
