Happy Birthday , No Lines Colouring.


I have been trying to get to this card for the last week after seeing Tracey McNeelys' beautiful inspiration card on Muse Challenge #153


I love clusters of flowers and clusters of three and the colours she has used.

I kept getting busy with other things and had to keep putting the card off and the biggest problem for me is I have so many flower stamps its like 'which one will I use' and the funny thing is I have gone for one of my oldest sets and pretty near one of the first sets I bought. I love this flower.


This is the first time I have done no-line colouring for this stamp and I started out thinking I have bitten off more than I can chew here. I stamped each flower in the Distress Ink colour for the colour of the flower I wanted to do. Then when I added the first coat of copic to the front flower the petals all blended together and I struggled to work out individual petals and shadows.

But I got it done.  And Ruth don't have a heart attack started an hour and a half ago and still have 2 hrs 10 minutes to spare before the challenge closes. Mind you no one will have seen it but hey I did it.

After all my colouring I added a bit of pencil to the copics to help define some areas. Added a few clear sparkly gems and stamped Happy Birthday. All one layer - wahoooo

Now time to add this to:




I've just gone with no topping in this instance.

Okay thanks for coming to visit and hope to see you again soon.

Saw your card in the MUSE challenge gallery. Lovely flowers! Great coloring and card. I tried to vote for you but for some reason I was only allowed two votes and then I got a window that said "cannot vote." That never happened b4. Know that you would have positively had my vote if it had worked! :)

such a beautiful and bright floral card!

yes, twinkling H2Os need to be primed first to showcase them at their best - anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes; i'm impatient so i wait 5; then stir to mix mica and pigment. the longer you wait, the thicker the consistency and more intense the colour. i removed all the lids from mine and store them in a clear plastic container with a lid. there are a couple of videos at the company's website: colourarte.com. have fun playing!
