A new way to color aka no line stamping


So this week over at Paper Pretties, the challenge is to be inspired by fall.

I decided to try a new technique that I saw this past week on Lydia’s blog who saw it at Holly’s blog. No line stamping or Stamp Nekkid (as Lydia called it).

I stamped the owls in blush blossom and colored over them with copics. Was very interesting to do, especially with their tails/wings but all in all I think I did a pretty good job! Used some retired SU Fall design paper for my card, ribbon and leaf brads.  Sketch came from I need a sketch blog.


Don’t forget to come play with us as One random lucky participant this week will win "a Paper Pretties sentiment sampler" . You do not need to use Paper Pretties stamps in order to play along, but if you do, you will get a bonus entry into the drawing! You have to link your card on the Paper Pretties blog NOT here! Can’t wait to see your Fall Inspired.

Digi Doodle Shop – Autumn colors
Friday Mashup – Autumn
