Noline Coloring : Roses

Hi Friends!

Am playing along the daily marker 30 day challenge and today i find little time to do a watercolored Roses card.

A quick jump into my creations for today!

A novice attempt at No line coloring....I never attempted at a solid stamp for noline coloring. So tried today with this Deep Red Stamps -Rose blooms.

Stamped its using Antique linen, colored with fave Zig real brush pens and all highlights using Fabercastell polychromos.

And finally splatters using the Splatter brush of the colors which i used for coloring.

All time fave sentiment to finish off the card.

Few dew droplets as final touches.

Hope you like it!

Floral Mixed media canvas

Hi friends!!!

How are you all doing!

Sharing here a Mixed media canvas which i did as a Guest Design Project for Itsy bitsy a week before.

  • Took a 5"x7" canvas and white gessoed it completely.
  • I used light paste for a textural touch with Lime splash spray and applied using IB Chevron Stencil from my stash.
  • Then added layering with gauze and corrugated packaging material over the stenciled area.
  • Gessoed down whole area again to tone down the colors.
  • Sponged the white frame with Metallic gold pigment ink and added over the layering.
  • On that added the handmade flowers from various collections .
  • Green heat embossed IB Flourish chipboard from my stash and added near the floral spray.
  • Took Lime splash spray on a brush and brushed around the floral cluster and added few art stones for the interest.
  • Stamped a few random print script over the entire canvas panel.
  • Then gave a generous splash of white gesso over the floral cluster area.
  • Then, die cut sentiment from IB backing sheet of chipboard, clear heat embossed and added over the chipboard.
  • Sponged butterfly with baby pink pigment ink and added to the canvas.

Am linking this to following challenges:
