Yay! It's time for our Taylored Expressions Monthly Studio Challenge! I love doing this every month with my fellow Baker's Dozen Team Mates! It's so much fun to see everyone's interpretation of the challenge. Each month Taylor and Jami come up with a fun question for us to answer as a way for us to share tips and tricks and ideas.
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, our blog readers are left staring at a beautiful sky and asking 'how did she do that?' So please show us your sky techniques Baker's Dozen!"
Here is a close up of my sky background! I almost always use the TE Cloud Border die and a sponge dauber to make my sky backgrounds. They always come out fluffy and perfect! I love this sentiment - perfect for this card. Supply links are at the end of my post....
What goes better with a beautiful blue sky? Sunshine! (What did you think I was going to say? A margarita? That too!)
Here are the easy peasy steps to making a soft blue sky background for your cards.... First cut out a cloud border die with some colored paper (makes it easier that using white paper). Get your favorite blue ink and a small sponge dauber.
Line up your cloud border die on your paper, and start sponging. VERY important tip - sponge up and down, not in circles or in lines.... This will make a big difference in your inking...
Move your template down a little way and sponge another section, and keep repeating this. You'll be amazed when you see your clouds come to life!
Pretty soon this is what you have!
And, my final background paper! Yipppeeee! Don't you want to try this right now!? What is your favorite technique? I'd love to hear!
