I have long admired so many cards with images coloured with the 'no lines' technique and decided to give it a try. At this point I must admit that I use Copics, Spectrum Noir, Promarkers, Letraset Pantone and Graph'It alcohol markers all together on the same image . .. and it works for me despite the recommendations not to mix brands. I haven't watched any colouring tutorials and when I started building my collection of markers I experimented and came up with my own techniques.
Whoopi Goldbery once remarked that it never occurred to her parents to teach her that there would be some things she couldn't do..... And so it was with the 'no lines' technique - I saw it done and thought "I can do this!"
Here is the result:
The image Thanks! is My Mo Manning and here is a closer look:
I probably broke a few 'rules' and didn't follow the right procedure, but I love the final product. I think next time I may print the lines a little lighter.
To create my card, I used the following from my stash:
white CS card base
two colours of blue CS for the mats
assorted blue pearls
heart shaped pearl bead
glittered number - self adhesive
peel off sentiment
