Celestial Hello
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends. Today I wanted to show you a night scene with some of the new layering cloud dies. I usually make them into day scenes, but they work equally as well for night.

To make my background, I started with Memory Box watercolor paper then dabbed the paper into puddles of Colorburst watercolor powders mixed with a lot of water. That gave me a splotchy background of dark blues and purples:


To make it look more like a night scene, I then smudged places of my cardstock with black Distress Ink. Start out light and then add more black as needed. To finish the look and to create "stars," I splattered the whole piece with watered down white acrylic paint.

Next, I cut out my layers of clouds from white cardstock. I thought about using a light grey, but I wanted to have a high contrast with the background and settled on white. To add a bit of interest to the clouds, I edged them with C00, c1 and C2 Copic markers.

I layered all of the cloud pieces on top of each other by adding some foam tape between each layer. I liked the dimension of the foam tape. To finish everything, I added silver stars and my die cut sentiment:


Thanks so much for stopping by today!
