A simple cloud effect

Good morning today i will show you how to make a simple cloud effect to make your image pop....

I take my already coloured image, today i am using "Charlotte riding reindeer" she is one of my favorites, i have coloured her with markers and chalks, i have added some blush on both Charlotte's and the reindeer's cheeks using my red and a cotton bud, next i take a small cut scallop nestie and a small bit of cotton wool....

I place my scallop where i want the cloud effect and i dip my cotton in my chalk, and then i brush towards the top...

This is the effect that you get, if you decide that you do not like it you can simply rub it out with a pencil rubber and start again, using this technique i carried on until i was happy with my clouds...

I love the effect that chalks gives i think it makes the image pop out at you, when you are happy take a clean bit of cotton wool and dab it over the top of your clouds to blend in the scallop lines....

Here is my finished card, thank you so much for looking and if you have a go at this do let me know and i will come by and have a look big hugs love Pops x x x
