Neat & Tangled January Release Week Day 4 - Giveaway



Hey folks, today is the last reveal day for our January release.  Today we're showing off a mini set from Elena Roussakis called Floral Heart.

I've always been a little awed by people who can do no line coloring.  It's totally intimidating to me, but I thought with an image with little parts it might be easier.

I'm not sure if it's harder or easier, all I know is this no line coloring stuff is hard and it takes a really really long time!

I stamped the image with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then colored with Copics, keeping the stamp itself close by for reference when I was coloring.  I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out, although I have to say the OCD in me really doesn't like that you can still see some of the Antique Linen in the light areas.  If you're a no-line colorer, I'd love to know if there is a better ink for this.



The sentiment is also from this set and was stamped in Versafine, and I used an 01 Journaling Pen for the little branch parts.

Short and sweet today.  Remember, I'll be drawing a winner for my Calathea set from all the release week post comments, and will announce tomorrow morning.  Stop by the Neat & Tangled blog too as Danielle is giving away a set to a lucky someone.  See you tomorrow!

  39. I think you did a fabulous job at no line colouring and especially for your first attempt. Your card is my favourite from the today's release. No line colouring is on my to do list and I can only hope I can do it half as good as you.

  43. What a beautiful card!!, I love your combination of greens, I'm going to have to use this combo. For no line coloring I like to use Hero Arts butter bar or sometimes MFT insulation pink. But when using watercoloringredients I use the same distress ink you used
