I got this set some time ago, I can’t remember when. Pre-pandemic. Is this something you all do too? Put a timeframe pre-pandemic and post pandemic? I love yellow and pink together. My original idea for this card was to have it be all different shades of pink, that was because I was using a different sentiment. As soon as I saw this sentiment I was “oh yellow my love, where are you?” I found the perfect shade of yellow that was bright enough to go w/ this sentiment and the 4 pinks I have already chosen.
I am getting it mailed tomorrow and I hope the recipient love it as much as a I do.
I see all these amazing people doing no-line coloring and I am 100% in love with it! … but do I like it better that the nice rich black line we are used to? Does it depend from project to project? Probably! I decided to do a bit of testing. I picked this super cute stamps from Concord and 9th to watercolor doing both no-line and line coloring. Using the same colors. What do you think? My hubby is all for the line coloring and so it’s my kid, I am still not convinced. What’s your vote?
My first images are of the line coloring with a nice crisp black line. My second set of images are the no-line coloring example and I used antique linen distress ink for my lines.
I have to say it’s harder to define the face on the no-line watercoloring and I also should have used a not so harsh marker for her eyes. Live and learn, test and play, right? I had to show you a close up of that little brown dog on the no-line coloring. He is my favorite thing ever! Both of these cards have been address and should be in the mail today!
Supplies: I forgot to mention that I used the Concord and 9th die cuts too.
This is my final card and I love it so much! This little witch went through a makeover! I knew I wanted to use this Dina Wakley stamp, but I also knew I wanted her to be a witch. Let me show you the original stamp and the modifications I did to her.
I used a STABILO ALL pencil, which is a pencil that reacts with water. I stamped her very lightly with a black water reactive ink so I could blend my changes with the Stabilo All pencil. I defined her nose added some curly hair and of course a witch’s hat.
I used a water soluble crayon to scribble the background and then added water to smooth it out. I love how vibrant this crayon color stayed.
