Ok! I am back from a short holiday. We need that break as we were all getting stressed and overwhelmed with the same same routine. Plus my daughter who is in year 12 needed the break as she was getting more and more stressed. We had a wonderful time and much refreshed now. Upon arrival back though, my doggie who was boarded, missed us so much that he did not eat, drink for the whole week. Lost weight, dehydrated, vomiting and diarrhoea….. I have been nursing him with major guilt. Today is back to his normal self, very hungry and following me everywhere. I cannot be more happy. It is a pleasure to see him healthy and happy.
Anyway, enough of my rant. Yesterday, I had a chance to restart my crafting. Hoping it would be a marathon considering I had the day free. Little did I know, I was so wrong. I forgot about my medical appointment. That took me half a day. Nevertheless, I did restart crafting in the evening. Generally, when I get back into crafting after a break, I do simple cards. Just to get the flow going. But yesterday, I went in for the hardest technique-no line colouring. For some reason, I had the confidence to just go for it. I have to say, I enjoyed doing no line colouring. Was time consuming but its a pleasure.
Hello and welcome, I am Gayatri, a papercrafter. Today’s card project showcases no line colouring using copic markers and colour pencils. All products used are from Simon Says Stamp. Without further adieu, here is the card.
I used Simon’s older floral stamp set called Even More Spring Flowers. I love all of this flower series. One of my Simon’s favourite series. I stamped the flowers and leaves using Ink On 3 Fadeout Ink. Then used copic markers to colour all the images. Then to add more depth to the coloured image, I used Polychromos colour pencils. Using the coordinating dies, I die cut all the coloured images.
For the background, I used Simon’s Square Dance stencil. I sponged Squeezed Lemonade and Mustard Seed distress inks diagonally opposite side fading to the centre. I added some clean clear water spatter along with gold spatter.
Using the diecut flowers and leaves, I glued them to make two clusters. One big and one small. I adhered them over the stenciled background using foam adhesives for dimension.
The sentiment is from Tiny Words Birthday. I stamped the sentiment in black over a cardstock sponged with Mustard Seed distress ink. Trimmed using Label Dies and adhered as shown.
I am so thrilled with my no line colouring especially after a long break. And I needed a floral birthday card to give. This turned out perfect. I love it. Thank you very much for taking the time to visit my blog. Have a lovely day and I will see you tomorrow with more projects.
