Watercoloring a Scenic Background

Watercoloring a Scenic Background by Jen Shults

Hi everyone! Today I have a card to share today using the Spooky Trees Accessory dies from Taylored Expressions. This was a super fun card to make!!

I want to share how I made the scene behind the wolf – it was so easy and very quick. I started by die cutting my watercolor paper with the panel from Build a Tag 5. Next I coated the paper with water and used Distress Ink Refill ink to paint a night sky. After this was dry I brushed clouds on with clean water and blotted the water with a paper towel to remove the ink from those areas. I used a little diluted Black Soot ink to make shadows on the clouds and painted in the moon with Scattered Straw ink. I created the silhouette of hills with Black Soot at the bottom. This was super easy and I think it turned out wonderful.
