The No Line Coloring technique was featured in a recent Facebook LIVE. I will try to explain it in this post, but it's one of those techniques where pictures are better than words. You can hop over to my Facebook page (be sure to LIKE it while you're there) and watch the video.
In a nutshell, No Line Coloring is simply:
- Inking a line art image in very light ink. In this case I used Sahara Sand.
- Stamping off the image on scrap paper
- Stamping the image on the paper you're going to color on
- Using a coloring medium – in this case Stampin' Blends
As you color you will find that the lines simply disappear. The image looks as though you colored it from scratch with no aid of the lines from a stamp.
I hope this made sense, but I stand by watching the video will help quite a bit.
Once I had the colored image complete the card came together pretty fast:
- Fold the base of the card and burnish with a Bone Folder
- Run the next layer through the Big Shot using the Swirls Embossing Folder
- Run the poinsettia through the big shot to cut the image with thinlits
- Color the Jewel Pearls with Real Red and Daffodil Delight Stampin Blends
- Attach the pearls to the poinsettia
- Attach the poinsettia to the card using Dimensionals
- Stamp the greeting
- Fussy cut greeting
- Attach the greeting with Dimensionals
If you still need to finish making your holiday cards you should join in the fun (live or on the go) on December 1! The Early Bird Special will expire tomorrow – hop over to this page to read the details.
