Hello everyone! We have Nichol on the blog today! To create a no-line watercolored effect, Nichol first stamped the hanging sloth and flowers images from the new Hey Girl Stamp Set on Bristol Smooth Cardstock with the light Coffee Loves Milk Dye Ink. This light ink works great as a guideline on where to lay down color. Nichol used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a water brush pen to blend out the color. Once the ink is applied, you don’t even see the original stamped lines anymore!

Watch it below or on our Youtube Channel! Don’t forget that once the design is completely dry to go back in and draw in the eyes, noses, mouths, etc. on any faces with this technique. A light blue watered down background adds to the sky effect and a Chunky Grass Border colored with Distress Inks blends in with the rest of the watercolored scene. The card was finished with a stamped greeting from the Hibiscus Stamp Set and a frame created with dies from the Lacy Layers Die Collection.
