Clouds of Snow


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.
