No Line Coloring with Paper Smooches + Sneak Peaks & SALES

Hey folks!

In today's video, I'm showing you how to do some no line coloring. No line coloring can be easy or it can be involved and time consuming. I decided to take a somewhat middle of the road approach. Simple shapes with just a wee bit of detail. I also have a couple of sneaks for two more cards in my video aaaaand keep reading because I have Black Friday Sales listed below!

I hope that everyone had an amazing Thanksgiving! We did, I ate myself in to a food coma and took some much need time with the fam. It. Was. Great. I'm forever thankful anytime I get the chance to hang with my favorite peeps! Leave me a comment and tell me what you're thankful for!

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

Also. You can watch the video on how I made my cards HERE. You can also click on the thumbnail link below.

For my card today, I used the Paper Smooches GRACEFUL BEAUTIES Stamp Set. I stamped all of my images on Neenah SOLAR WHITE 80# Cardstock.

You can use any light color of dye ink when you are doing no line coloring, but I usually use whatever color of ink for the color I'm going to color with my Copic's. Of course, it doesn't always work out this way. Sometimes I have to choose a neutral color, but no big. Either way, it works out just fine.

If you're interested in the inks I used, here is a list of Simon Says Stamp Inks:

I show in the VIDEO how I color these in. The thing to keep in mind when no line coloring folks, is just take your time. You still have lines to follow, you just need to take it slow and you'll get there. I promise.

I often keep things simple and clean when I do no line coloring. In the VIDEO, I show how I do a very light drop shadow on each of the butterflies on one card, but you can see from the other card, I went with a darker, heavier drop shadow. Drop shadows can be a lil tricky in no line, but I really love how much more finished it looks.

To finish them off, I used a Spectrum Noir CLEAR OVERLAY Pen (shocker, I know) on the highlight of the butterflies and a Sakura CLEAR GLAZE Pen on the butterfly bodies and hearts.

I have two sneaks for you in the VIDEO! They are both examples of No Line Coloring. In one I'll show you how I use a die from the Hero Arts MY MONTHLY HERO KITturn it into an image to color, then I finish off the panel with the Hero Arts PINE BRANCHES Stamp Set. In another video I will show you how I do some no line coloring on a slightly more complicated image like the Wplus9 CHRISTMAS ROSE BOUQUET Stamp Set. Be sure to check those out!

That's it! Easy peasy. Be sure to check out the list of sales below!
