To create clouds colour a rough cloud shape with your lightest grey (I used the green greys) and then add a bit of depth with a couple of darker greys. Add highlights by dotting a little ink from the White Graph'it Shake pen on my craft mat and dabbing it on with my finger...
...I had to try and remember the colour palettes from my teeny brain and I completely misinterpreted them but never mind...I wanted to keep the colours on this one really light and soft...
apologies this is completely out of focus but I was really struggling with the light and just after I photographed this I then used it for another project which has changed it completely so I couldn't retake the pic...
Which brings me on to backgrounds...they can completely transform your colouring...this is the same image 30 mins later after I added her to a journal page and used Pan Pastels and stamps to create a background for her...you'd think it was a completely different image but I did nothing whatsoever to the image other than tear it out, glue it down and then sweep colour around it, the image itself is unchanged...
The image is from Polkadoodles Ickyink range available here.
