No Line Pencil Colouring with Hero Arts & Pinkfresh Studio

Sunday, March 29th, 2020

Hello and welcome back! I hope everyone is playing it safe and staying at home!! I have been and actually enjoying every minute of it!! I’m a homebody at heart so staying in doesn’t bother me one bit. But if you’re the more social type, I give you strength :)!

Today, I’m sharing a card featuring the Hero Arts and Pinkfresh Studio collaboration set, You Make A Difference. This is a large stamp set with a beautiful, sketchy background along with tons of awesome sentiments. I decided to do a bit of no-line colouring with my pencil crayons.

Because I wasn’t adding any water or blending solution to this card, it was safe to use any type of ink. As long as it was quite light in colour! Memento Desert Sand Ink is perfect for this technique! I used a two shade combination for each image. Starting with the light and adding some darker bits. This image is very sketchy and easy to colour!

After it was all coloured, I took a very light blue pencil and went around the edges to create a bit of contrast. It’s very subtle and hard to see but it’s there!  I was so tempted to fussy cut the centre of the image out but didn’t want to wreck anything at this point. So, I stamped one of the sentiments from the set using a medium shade of grey ink. The hearts came from a set I had in my stash.

I put some finishing details like white gel pen and Nuvo Crystal Glaze to bits of the image. The panel was adhered directly to a white card base.

And that’s my finished card for today! I hope you enjoyed!

Thank you for dropping in. Stay home and stay healthy!
