Welcome crafters! Tia here from RockyMtnCraftia.com, “I’m so glad I live in a world where there are Octobers.” -Anne of Green Gables (By: L.H. Montgomery) Inspired by the beauty of Fall and the new release “Gather Together” from Joy Clair Designs , I did a little no line coloring for today’s design team post.
This image is from the newly release set “Such A Blessing“. You can see what a beautiful set it is! To create an image for no-line coloring, I changed the contrast of my image until the lines were faint and barely visible, in other words, creating no-lines. This was easy to do as the image already features thin, light lines.
I knew I wanted to create a card using the hands & leaf image. The lines are light and thin-perfect to create with for no-line coloring. With my digital software I created mirror images and minimized one set of the hands. If you wanted a 5×5 or 6×6 size card, you could easily enlarge the image. I opted on making a slim line card (I have several of the slim line dies on sale and have been excited to use them!). The sentiment “You Are Such A Blessing” is from the set and fits with the images beautifully. After printing out my design I die-cut it with the Pleated Lace Slimline Die from Gina Marie Designs.
Paper & Markers:
After selecting a design paper with large, bright leaves I colored my leaves to match. Therefore, I chose bright, light saturated colors that also blended easily into one another. Next, wanting to keep the focus on the leaves, I colored the sweater sleeves in neutrals. The background was filled with beautiful, bright blue to enhance the colors of the leaves.
Leaves:Y02; Y06; YG01; YG03; Y17; R02; R14
Sweaters: E43; E44; E31; E30; YR000
Hands: E00; E11; E21; E31; E35
Sky: BG000; BG01
I popped the panel up on foam tape and adhered it to the design paper. I finished the card with a dark brown slimline card base.
No line coloring really brings focus to your images-pick up this new release and give it a try!
Until next time-get crafty!
