Trying new techniques can lead to big fail or big wahou. As we say, if you don’t try, you can’t fail. I am still learning with each card I am making and I do not regret that I tried the no-line colouring.
This is not an easy one as you have to really intensify the shading and seeing the result, I could have done more of it.
I used a normal cardbase and then made a background using the patterned paper pack from My favorite things (from which I have nearly the full collection, am I addicted?). This card was made for my now-husband and wanted to make it as masculine as I could, hence the blue.
My favorite things Paper pad 6″ Dots&Stripes Fresh
Shinhan Twin Touch markers
My favorite things Birdie Brown Birthday Bears Clear Stamps
Wow! embossing powder vintage peacock
Tim Holtz distress ink antique linen
Choose carefully the ink pad for the stamping because you want to make sure it will work well with the alcohol marker and won’t show up neither.
Do not hesitate to insist with the shading. In my opinion I did not work enough on it. Something to improve with the next card.
