No Line Coloring with Crafter's Companion

To make the image no line I used Spectrum Noir Inkpad Sandstorm, but I stamped it off first to make it a really light tan color. I stamped the image three times on a card stock panel.

Then I got to coloring! It does take longer because you have to be aware of the lines, doing a little at a time. I use the packaging as a guide to make sure I'm really coloring a petal the correct way. But, don't worry about being perfect! Only you know what the image should really look like and there were definitely places I color it a little different then the original stamp!!

To color the images I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend Markers - Blends: Pale Pink, Light Yellow, Hydrangea, Dull Green.

When I was done coloring I stamped the Birthday Wishes with the SN Inkpad Noir Black. Last I added a few sequins for a little texture and sparkle!

Thanks so much for stopping by!!

I'm stopping in with a card featuring a new digital stamp set from Graciellie Designs! It's called Happiness is Homemade and such a fun and versatile set!

I used Word to resize the lemonade jar and the small tag. I also included an sentiment making it small enough to fit inside the tag. Then I added the tag to the jar image and printed it out.

I used my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend to color the image, making my lemonade more of a tea with fruit! First coloring the fruit and straw, then coloring the whole jar with a light brown color.

Next, I made a card base from black card stock. I added a few different washi tape lengths and colors. From my stash I found this gold and white hello, so I added it and my jar to the card with foam tape.

I made two cards featuring the Coffee To Go Cup die! While Coffee might be in the name, you can easily use it for tea cups like I did! I'm not going to go into a lot of details for the hop!

For both cards I made my tea cups, but using my Spectrum Noir Tri-Blend markers to color the die cut cup brown. I used a coffee die cut from MFT to cut the ice cubes, using a gray marker to add some shading.  The straws are from the pattern papers I used.

With my first card I used Photo Play Paper Summer Daydreams collection adding a stripe pattern to a card base. Then I used a few stickers from the collection, adding them with foam tape. I also added one of the SugarPea tea cups that I made.

For my second card I got a little inky. I picked out a three Distress Ink colors that matched and blended them together. Then I spritzed a little bit of water over the background and finally splattered some gold ink spray I have.
