I’m definitely pleased with today’s card. I’m quite taken with Tilda’s hair in this image, and it turned out beautifully when coloured using the “No Lines” colouring technique. I love the clean lines in the image, and how striking it looks against the background. Plus, Tilda is really just looking pretty adorable. 😉
I have an extra, brand new, Tilda with Big Tulips stamp, which I’d like to giveaway as a little thank you to my readers. All you have to do to enter the giveaway draw is comment on this blog post (no other requirements, and you do not need to have a blog to enter). I will draw a winner on Friday 1st February 2013, so get your comments in before 9am GMT that day.
I stamped the image with Adirondack Lake Mist (I stamped it lightly first on scrap paper so that the stamped image came out really light) on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (details below).
Last year I posted a video on No Line Colouring, along with a step by step tutorial over on Splitcoast Stampers. The main difference here is that I coloured the background first for a bolder look (similar to my Whimsy Stamps Santa and Teddy Portrait card and also my Lollyrot card).
The designer paper is from an old My Mind’s Eye 12×12 collection (check me out getting the paper stash used up) and I inked the edges with Distress Ink in Walnut Stain. The edges of the diecut image layer were inked using a Versamagic Chalk Ink in a blue to match the background colouring, just to finish off the edges nicely. The chipboard embellishments are Make it Crafty Butterfly Leaves, and I coloured them with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers in some of the same greens I used on the image.
Thank you for dropping by and checking out my card! I always love to hear from you, so don’t hesitate to leave a comment. I do try to answer any questions, so if you have any don’t be afraid to ask!
