Hi everyone, today I’m sharing this no line colouring card project with you all. I don’t find this creative style very easy and it takes quite some time, but it was fun to try out.
I used InkOn3 “No Line Coloring” stamping ink for stamping the cupcake images onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper. The stamps are by Paper Rose Studio and this set is called “Hey Cupcake”. This particular ink is taking on the colour of the medium that you put on top and it’s suitable for all kind of markers and pencils.
After stamping the images you can directly start the colouring process. I used three different mediums, all water soluble, and in the end I think like the results of the Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers best.
For the first set of images I used the SN ColourTint pencils, these are tinted watersoluble graphite pencils and therefore have a more vintage muted colour. I used the colours:
Grass Green, Leaf Green, Deep Mauve, Rust, Caramel and Ocean. You can find all the colours that I used on this project here: https://www.crafterscompanion.eu/colourtint-by-spectrum-noir-primary-12pc.html
I scribbled each pencil onto a Caran d’Ache palette (for watercolour pencils, it’s slightly rough) and than I picked up the colour with a small damp brush and painted onto the paper. Later on I put the pencil directly to the paper and went over the pigment with a damp brush, this works as well.
For the second set I used the Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers. I put the colour onto my glass work surface and picked up the colour with my small brush and applied the colour to the paper. I used the following colours: Flame Red, Sepia, Boulder, Navy, Terracotta, Chestnut, Flint and Bud Green; that you can all find here: https://www.crafterscompanion.eu/art-and-colouring/spectrum-noir/aqua.html
My last set of cupcakes was coloured with the Spectrum Noir AquaBlend pencils (these are regular watercolour pencils). I used the colours: Elderberry, Wild Orchid, Currant, Claret, Azalea, Clay, Hickory, Shire Green and Spruce; that you can all find here: https://www.crafterscompanion.eu/art-and-colouring/spectrum-noir/aquablend.html
I applied them in the same way as I did with the ColourTint pencils mentioned above.
After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen and than I fussy cut all the images leaving a small border.
The rest of the project is quite easy: I used the Crafter’s Companion “Sweet Treat Accessories” stamp set for my sentiment and stamped it either with dark brown ink or with VersaMark ink in combination with Wow “Opaque Vanilla White” embossing powder. On the Aqua Pencil project I created a fun background using a The Crafter’s Workshop stencil (this one is TCW924s), in combination with Spectrum Noir Water Reactive ink in the colour “Pale Fig” and a blending brush.
And that is it for today’s project, I wish you a creative day!
