Vibrant Blooms No-Line Colored Pencil

Today I am featuring the beautiful Gina K. Designs stamp set, “Vibrant Blooms”. I love how realistic these images are- perfect for no-line coloring! I stamped the images in Gina K. Designs Whisper Amalgam ink on Gina K. Designs Artist’s Choice cardstock. The Whisper ink is a beautiful soft grey color that is easily covered with color, making the lines disappear from the image as you color. This creates a ‘no-line’ effect. I personally prefer to stamp the Whisper ink twice rather than once, because it gives the color a little more richness.

There’s even a coordinating die set to make it a breeze to cut out your images. Although, there is always the option of scissors if you are a patient saint.Vibrant-Blooms-Die-Set

I used a variety of Prismacolor pencils to color these flowers, keeping track of what I used by scribbling on the back of my cardstock. I totally forgot to take a photo of the back of the card before die-cutting my images, but I put it back together like a puzzle for the photo. Success! (kinda)

Here is a list of the Prismacolors I used-

1011 Deco Yellow
916 Canary Yellow
1003 Spanish Orange
1033 Mineral Orange
1032 Pumpkin Orange
924 Crimson Red
1078 Black Cherry
911 Olive Green
1005 Lime Peel

I feel like it has been quite a while since I have practiced no-line coloring, and I think I need to get back into practicing. There is definitely a learning curve, but the results are beautiful. Even for someone who doesn’t know what they’re doing. Like me.

I kept my final card design pretty simple to keep my florals as the main focus.  I embossed diagonal stripes using my Scor-Buddy tool by scoring at every quarter inch. Don’t look too closely on that scoring- there are some issues I am choosing to ignore…
