AIR16 Sky's the Limit

I made the watercolor backgrounds for Cindi’s Sky’s the Limit Challenge (watercolor skies).

Fabriano 140-lb. hot press watercolor paper
Wet-on-Wet Technique
Talens Watercolours

This was fun to do. I'm not sure how I feel about the results; I don't really see the clouds I thought I had made. I tried to copy what was done in the video Cindi linked (Strathmore Artist Workshop Class), but I don't have 300-lb watercolor paper so I wasn't able to use as much water as Steve Mitchell did. I taped my paper down to a board and was very glad I did because it did buckle quite a bit. However, the next day it as dry and flat. Even without the clouds, this makes a lovely background. Thanks for the Challenge, Cindi.

I'm uploading the card I made with my favorite one in the next post.

I like them all too! I think the middle one looks like it has billowing clouds. I'm sure they will all look great when stamped over.
