"No Lines" Colouring Technique...

So you may has seen/heard about the "no lines" colouring technique. I had finally decided to have a looks difficult...but this week I challenged myself to have a go, and today I am sharing my results.

I took one of the new Magnolia stamps...she is called Love Love Love Tilda. I have stamped her three times onto Craftwork Cards Digital Cardstock with three different coloured Memento Inks...left to right...Tuxedo BlackLondon Fog & Summer Sky.

Each image was coloured with Copics using the same colours so that you get a direct comparison. I am not sure which of them I prefer and that is pretty much down to personal preference...when I asked my daughter she liked the left hand image in the conventional Tuxedo for me, I am undecided.

So here is the card I made with the image...well one of them...and after all my hard work I had to use the "no lines" version...
The papers are all Cosmo Cricket Summer Love layered onto Bazzill Cardstock inElephant I have added a doily, some stitched ribbon, a heart paperclip, a small red foam rose and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

I would love to hear your comments...What do you think? Which version do you prefer?

Cute Card Thursday - Good Luck Charm!

This week over on the Cute Card Thursday blog our theme is Good Luck Charm.

For my card I have used a Saturated Canary image called Ava she was a former freebie, but can now be bought for just $2...bargain price. I have coloured her with Copics using the following colours...
Skin - E000/E00/E11/E13/R20
Eyes - E47/E49
Har - E25/E27/E29
Clothing - BG10/BG11/BG13/Y38/R20/R21
The papers are all American Crafts Dear Lizzie Neopolitan. I have added just some bakers twine, bling, a star charm and a Craftwork Cards sentiment.

Feels kind of weird going back into my little craft room...feels like I have not been in there for ages, but with all this sunshine it just seems wrong to hide in there...

Rock On!

I finally made a card after have a break forced on me due to a bad back...

I have used the MFT Die-namics Rock & Roll die set with some scraps of Bazzill Kraft (base & stars) & Bling (flames) cardstock. The papers are a mixture of different My Minds Eye On the Bright Side - One (denim piece), Happier (orange piece), Lime Twist (star & teal pieces), and Basic Grey Basics Kraft paper pad. I have embellished with a few metal studs and letters a pack of My Minds Eye letters in the Follow Your Heart Up & Away range.

To make the flames more dimensional I have added some red chalk ink to the edges, and distressed all the papers which hopefully add to the masculine feel of the card...and I even have a recipient in mind for this one...

Will be back tomorrow with another card...
