The question for August is:
The Sky's the Limit! There are so many ways to create sky backgrounds for our cards and projects. Often times, our blog readers are left staring at a beautiful sky and asking "How'd she do that?"
Show us one of your favorite ways to create a pretty sky background and make sure we know how to re-create it!
One technique I use a lot to create sky backgrounds is the Bouncing Brayer Technique. It's really very simple! I've created a short video to show you how I've created the background for my card today:
I used an oldie stamp set in the TE Store. . .Frightful Night. After I brayered the sky using the Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor pad, I stamped the trees and bats from the set. Next I stamped, colored and cut out the clouds and tombstones and mounted them on the card with foam tape. I added the fence using the Spooky Fence Border Die and then stamped the sentiment on a piece of cardstock that was die cut using the Banner Stacklets 1. The papers are from the Halloween Parade Collection from Doodlebug.
I hope you enjoyed the video on how you can create your own Bouncing Brayer sky!! Be sure to see how the rest of the Baker's Dozen created their sky!!
