Today I am delighted to show off some elegant roses for our newest challenge at Power Poppy, called Say Yes to No Lines. Cindy has given us a No-Line Colouring Challenge! With Valentine’s Day coming soon, I thought I’d create a love-themed card, showcasing some beautiful no-line roses.
I stamped the roses from My English Rose set onto Copic XPress it Blending Cardstock using Toffee Crunch ink, so that once I started colouring, those lines would disappear due to the ink being much lighter in colour. It takes patience, and a bit of a slower hand to get the accuracy with no-line colouring, but the results are so lovely and unique. It ends up looking more like a straight illustration than a stamped image.
I stamped both of the roses in the set to colour, one of which is attached to a “note”. When I cut the roses out, I just elimated the note. By doing that it looks more like a rose bush with smaller and larger roses, including some pretty buds.
On the white background layer I used my Scor Bug and Scor Buddy to create the raised dotted lines to give you the feeling of a trellis for the roses to climb on.
I embossed the word “love”in black onto the patterned paper, added a pretty leafy die cut from the same patterned paper as the strip and then some black sequins.
Here’s the Copics I used below.
Pop on over to be inspired by the rest of the Bloom Brigade playing along today...
