NO LINE STAMPING AND WATER COLORING

HEY BLOGGIES,

I LOVE BLOGGIE LAND!!  All the amazing talented crafters who are willing to share their knowledge and talents with everyone is awesome.  That is how I found this technique called NO LINE STAMPING.

Basically you stamp your image with a very very light color ink and then you use either water colors, or aqua pen and ink to color in your image.

I used stamped off Hello Honey ink for my faint images.  Then I tried both water coloring AND aqua painter and ink,..the smaller of the butterflies is my water colored image and the larger one is reinkers.  Which do you like better?

 I did the small butterfly with water colors first.  AND because no lines is a new technique for me, I ended up shading all around the outer edge which kind of defeated the purpose of the technique.

 The larger butterfly was the second one I did and I used an aqua painter and ink for this one.  I felt a bit more confident after practicing on the first butterfly and think I did a better job as well.


 Here is a close up on the large ink colored butterfly.  I used hello honey, coastal cabana and a little touch of soft suede,.  Then because all butterflies should be absolutely awesome, I used Wink of Stella clear glitter pen on the insides of the wings,

The other two accessories I used are mini square sequins and a die cut "thanks".  I layered the water color paper on a very thin piece if black cardstock and then onto coastal cabana.

I like that I stamped two very small butterflies with the stamped-off hello honey on the card as well.  Makes it look a bit like an architectural drawing I think.

Thanks for stopping by.  I have entered this card into the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge - anything goes.  Stop by and see what else was entered for their challenge.

  1. WOW in capital letters!! I am absolutely amazed at how your card turned out! Those butterflies are incredible! I had seen some other demos of this technique, but none come close to how well your butterflies turned out. The subtle blending of different colors is gorgeous and I love how you incorporated some sparkle, too. Both colored butterflies are really lovely and life-like. I also enjoyed seeing your different mediums on the two different butterflies. It's interesting how uniquely they each turned out! I think my favorite is the one you did with the reinkers just because I adore those soft edges. You really have inspired me, so thank you so very much for sharing your talents and this wonderful post with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog! And on a personal note, I, too, share your beliefs and enjoyed that image of Christ on your sidebar.
