VIDEO: No-Line Feathers & Florals with Kelly

Hello Crafters!

January has definitely arrived here in Ohio. It's 6 degrees outside. I am currently wearing 3 shirts, two pairs of socks, one pair of super heavy sweat pants and a robe. I am not joking. Do you know what I needed? Warm spring!

Fortunately, I had the Feathers & Florals stamp set waiting in the wings to save the day. Yay, flowers!

I ventured into the mostly terrifying world of no line coloring for this card. When I say it's terrifying let me clarify. It's frightening for me. I love a bold black outline. It's my happy little security blanket. However, I adore the soft look of no line coloring - so here I am, branching out.

You can see how I approached this technique in the video below.

Watch above or watch in HD at YouTube

All and all not too traumatic. LOL I really like the flow of the flowers and how they do look more transparent. Usually, my coloring is so bold, so it's nice to try something else every once in a while.

I especially like the detail of the white dots. I'm all about the little extra subtlety that it adds.

Thanks for stopping by!

  3. You make no-line coloring look easy. I like the way you start with a solid image. I'm game to try this now!

  4. Beautiful! You have inspired me to try this with Copics ! Maybe I will have more luck with Copics than Watercolour. Thank you !

  8. Kelly your no line colouring looks amazing. Thanks for explaining the steps and showing them in your video. I'm off to have a go, I don't have copics so am going to try it with coloured pencils to see if I can do something similar. Sending you some sunny warmth from Australia we've just finished a week of temperatures of about 100*F, it's a much more pleasant 67*F today. Have a lovely day and stay warm. Cheers Donna Z :)
