Make It Colourful

Hiya Peeps,

As you may already know Zoe from Make It Crafty has set off the trend of colouring without black lines, so either stamping with a very feint ink pad or if using a digi stamp, changing the capacity to a max of 20% or less if you dare.  So can you guess what this week's challenge is at Make It Colourful...... Yep, NO BLACK LINES, yikes.  The effect that I have seen in blogland has been stunning so below is my first attempt and I will be practicing some more as I love the overall effect of this technique.

I stamped and masked off my Tilda before stamping the Whimsical Mushroom using a Memento Summer Sky ink pad.

I have used my Greys C3, C1 and W3 to make the shadows darker.

I did use rather alot of Copic Markers:-


Perfect Colouring Copic Marker Card
Tilda with Tulips by Magnolia
Whimsical Mushroom by Make it Crafty
Grunge Collection by Stempleglede
Prima "Madeline" Paper Pad
Mini Dragonfly Lasercut Chipboard by Make It Crafty 
Martha Stewart Border and Branch Punches
Marianne Design  Flower  Die
Pearls, Tag, Doily from Stash
Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distress Ink

I have entered my card into the following challenges:-

All sorts - Green/Blue
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Craft your days away - Make your own flowers
Ellephantastic - Here come the girls
Alphabet - P for pretty pastels
Jellypark - Punches/Diecuts
All that scraps Magnolia - Stretch your imagination
Charisma - Anything goes
Moving along with the times - Handmade flowers

Hope to see you over at Make it Colourful.
