The Scarecrow #662382 is one of Tim Holtz's Halloween releases in his Sizzix Alterations line. It consists of three pieces, two with birds and one with the scarecrow and grass/wheat. They all cut beautifully and make for a quick, easy card or addition to a decor piece.
To form the clouds, I used the wide water brush, loaded with water, and brushed in cloud-shapes one at a time. Let the water pool and it will form kind of a border. I don't know why, but it has something to do with the chemical make-up of the Oxides. It's pretty cool!
Once the border forms, then I ever so gently, soak up a little bit of the pooled water, leaving some to make them look not so uniform and more cloud-like. I really love the way the clouds look.Handwritten Halloween #660598 set.
