Over on Create and Craft this last week-end they had their Spectrum Week-end which was to try to get people to try new things/try new techniques.
As you will see from my previous post I tried colouring with markers and then highlighting with pencils. On Sunday I saw a card that the ever so talented Nic (aka Coops) made using the no line technique. I popped on over to the Crafting When We Can Blog and saw that Ang had done a wonderful tutorial on how to change the image in Word so I followed, printed off and started colouring. Yikes!!! I wanted to bin the image many times. I certainly found it a lot harder than with the normal black lines. Hey ho what is a challenge if it's not a challenge sometime to do?
Please be very gentle with me. It's my first attempt at the no lines technique. I'd do a few things differently next time.
The image I have used is called "Emo Valentine Fairy" and is available from Delicious Doodles. If you would like this image as a rubber stamp it is available at Sweet Pea Stamps. I have coloured the image in with my Graph'it pens, highlighted areas with my white Graph'it pen and silver sparkle Graph'it pen.
I have finished the card off with some ribbon, web punched border using a Martha Stewart punch, metal skull charm, Craftwork Cards die-cut sentiment and some black gems.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Crafting When We Can - No lines technique
Sweet Pea Stampers - Things with wings
Stampin' for the Week-end - For the girls
Left of Centre - Girly
Pile it On - Metal
