Thanks for Being There



When I stamped the flowers for the no line colouring I stamped this one as well using black ink. I wanted to see if I would be just as happy with the look after doing 'no line colouring'. Happy to say I am. At first I felt it wasn't as pretty but it is, its just not the same.


Coloured with Copics (I love this flower from Altenew, I would have to say its my favourite), then did a finishing touch with pencil just to add a bit of lifework in the petals and leaves.


Added some swirls here and there to fill in empty spots. I forgot I had stamped in black in and did the swirls with a pale Distress ink colour and went over them with copics but I feel it still works ok.

Cut the panel slightly smaller than my green card base and added with dimensional foam behind. Added a row of glitter ribbon on the left, a die cut 'Thanks' at the bottom and a few enamel dots.

I am still working on trying to put less on the front of the card so it can be clean and simple but after colouring I knew it was too busy for CAS so just went wild with extras to finish it off.

Okay I would like to enter this at :




My die cut 'Thanks' is used for the first time.


Thank you so much for coming to have a look and I hope you visit again soon.

It's gorgeous! I love what you do with this stamp and the pencils on top of the Copics, with the extra swirls of distress inks adds so much depth. I love it! Xx

Well, so much for my plans to CPR my Playhouse. I'm pretty sure I broke my hip falling out of my chair when I saw this stunning card. I'll let you know how much you need to reimburse me for my copays! I thought the first noline card was beautiful, but for my taste, this one wins hands down. It must have something to do with the fact that I'm one of those anal "color within the lines" people. Your coloring looks so professional, Aileen. This would be on the high-end counter in the card store and it's crying out to be framed!! I'm totally pinning ... oh, wait, aaaccckkk!! Happy New Year Hugs! Darnell
