I stamped the large image in the stamp set onto Canson watercolor paper with Antique Linen Distress Oxide ink. I then painted the image using Prima watercolors. After painting I added in some details using colored pencils.

I trimmed the painted image down using my Tonic Trimmer. I then cut a frame out of black cardstock using my Hero Arts nested rectangles die set. I glued the frame on the painted panel.

Next I took a piece of black cardstock and taped the Diagonal Stripe stencil from Simon Says Stamp over it. I blended over the stencil with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink. This creates a nice, subtle background for my card. I adhered the panel to an A2 size card base.

I took the painted panel and popped it up on the card with foam tape. I decided not to add a sentiment to the front of the card and instead stamped one inside.

No-line Coloring Get Well Card | Colorado Craft Company

Hello my crafty friends! Today I am sharing a no-line coloring card featuring a stamp set from Colorado Craft Company!

1.jpg

I stamped the large image from the Get Well stamp set onto Neenah Desery Storm cardstock using my Misti tool. I stamped with Versamark ink so that the image would just be a very light watermark. This is what makes the no-line coloring technique possible.

I coloring in the image using my Prismacolor pencils. Once the coloring was done I die cut the image out with a circle die. I then glued that circle to a slightly larger circle die cut from white cardstock.

I cut a piece of Slate cardstock to 4.25 x 4.25 and then adhered it to a card base that was also cut to be 4.25 x 4.25. I glued my circle piece to the middle of the card. For my sentiment I embossed one of the stamps from the set onto Bazzill Licorice Twist cardstock with Alabaster white embossing powder. I popped the sentiment up onto the card with foam tape.

To finish up the card I added some really simple embellishments. I used two white hearts from Doodlebug and a sequin from the Girl’s Best Friend sequin set from Simon Says Stamp.

No-line Coloring with Colored Pencils | Colorado Craft Company

Today I did some no-line coloring with an awesome stamp set from Colorado Craft Company.

1.jpg

I stamped the image on Slate gray cardstock with embossing ink. I then colored it in with Prismacolor pencils.

I blended around the edges of the gray cardstock with Black Soot Distress Oxide ink to create a vignette. I embossed the sentiment with Alabaster white embossing powder from Brutus Monroe.

I adhered a piece of Desert Storm cardstock to a card base and then popped up the gray panel onto that with foam tape.

For finishing touches I added details with a white gel pen, some Wink of Stella glitter, and a border around the Slate cardstock edge.
