Tuesday Tips & Tricks: No Lines

Hi everyone! Samantha here with another Tuesday Tips and Tricks.

Today I want to show you a fun technique I have seen used across the blog-o-sphere. I like to call it the No Lines technique!

So for this technique you will need a light, barely visible ink to stamp your image with. I chose to use Desert Sand Memento ink, shown below.


Stamp your image with the light colored ink, and then start coloring like normal!  I had to pay extra close attention when coloring so I didn't go over the lines too much. The lines are so light that it is hard to see them sometimes.

I chose this Magnolia image from their Sweet Crazy Love collection, called Tilda Sending Love Letter.
 Once the image is colored, the lines are just visible on some of the lighter parts of the image, and they almost disappear on the areas of the image which are darker. Here is a close up look at my coloring:
Also notice I added brown around the edges so there was no white on my image. It just made the image blend in with my card much better.

Here is my finished card:

I created my sentiment from this journaling card shape, plus a SP and Company sentiment stamp "you are" from the Mix n Match: Friends stamp set.


So add this technique to your bag of tricks! I hope you will give it a try and show us what you come up with!
