An attempt at no-line colouring with Copic markers that I’m actually happy to show to people — I had a go at this technique a few months ago and that one quickly ended up in the bin 🙂
Marika Rahtu’s sweet and simple cards made with this stamp set.
I stamped the little skating mouse in light-coloured Copic-friendly ink and coloured it with Copic markers. Once I was happy with it I trimmed the bottom of the card leaving the edge of the ice skate protruding.
The sentiment was stamped in Versafine ink, which gives a good black impression, and the snowflakes were stamped in silver pigment ink.
I cut a small piece of patterned paper, attached a strip of glitter tape to it, and then glued it behind the card with the mouse on it. I then trimmed it to be the same height as a standard A6 card base but slightly narrower so that a strip of colour would show through on each side when I attached it to the red base.
Not all attempts at no-line colouring have to be disastrous, though there is a lot more to learn about this technique.
