More Faux No Line Work

Today was a mixed up mess due to circumstances with a delayed noon meal so that by the time I got my dishes done it was almost mid afternoon. But I did manage to try another attempt at the faux no line technique that I told you about yesterday. I found this more complicated floral design looks nice  doing it the same way. Remember you used copy paper and stamp your design with Memento black ink on that and then turn it over and color it with alcohol ink markers. This time I used the Copics. And as in both cases of my using the Zig markers yesterday and the Copics today I sometimes had to do several applications to get the right look.


I did make a mistake though by having the blooms go two different directions. I think if I had them going the same way it would have looked better. I used the flower from the Gina K. Designs Through Thick & Thin set and the sentiment was from the Gina K. Designs Dogwood and Butterfly set.

Once I had my design colored I then cut it out with a Unbranded Scalloped Stitch Rectangle Die from Cheapo Dies. I also used dies from the same set to make a frame by placing two of the dies together and then cutting them out from the Cranberry Tart card stock. Everything was then added to a white card base and the last thing added was three clear rhinestone gems. Oh, I also used a bit of white paint pen to add more dimension to the center of the flowers and also a darker green pen to add more of the highlights to the leaves too. The flowers I pretty much left as they were.

I am entering this card into the Dies R Us Challenge #93-Frame It.

I tell you this is really fun to do and since my eyesight is not as good as it used to be I find this a much easier way to do a no line look on images. I hope more of you will try it as well. Thanks to Melanie Muenchinger for coming up with this idea. I posted her video on the previous blog post so if you want you can go there and check it out.

Thanks for the visit and have a great evening. I love to read your comments too.

God bless,
Verna

This one turned out even better than your blue one! I think the flowers look fine just as you've placed them. I think you did a splendid job with this one, which I like very much. (maybe it's the red?!) You've presented it beautifully with the scallop stitch dies, and well done! I must try this. TFS & Hugs
