Hey folks! It's Cynde! I'm happy to be here today to share a project using some amazing products from the Winterhaven Stamp of Approval Collection! If you didn't get the chance to get this Collection when it was released, the products are now available for individual purchase!
I love the no line coloring technique and the Tis The Season Stamp Set is perfect for this! I can't seem to stop using the two together. I've shared my process in the video below.
I kept the stamping on my card pretty simple. I really only needed to cut out two masks. One for a leaf and one for the poinsettia.
Since I was going to be doing no line coloring, I chose some light colored inks. Everything that was going to get colored red, I stamped with It's A Girl Ink and for my greenery Garden Party was perfect.
One trick with no line coloring is to keep whatever coloring technique you're using simple. On this card I used short flicking motions until my images were colored in. You are already working slower to make sure you are keeping the shape of your image, so it's easier and much less intimidating if you stay consistent and simple.
My favorite Copic Red Combination and the one I used on today's card is R22, R24, R27 and R39. For the Greens, I used two sets of green Copic's. For the pine boughs and berry stems I used YG61, YG63, YG67 and G29. I used the same on the other leaves, but I skipped the G29. On the lighter green leaves I used, YG03, YG07, YG17 and YG67.
I always feel like that with no line coloring there really isn't a much you need to do finish it off. So, I didn't do too much on the rest of it.
I love, love, love the font for the sentiments in the Here We Come A-Carloing Stamp Set, so I used a sentiment from that with Midnight Ink.
I used a white gel pen to add a little more highlight to the berries. All things need a shimmer so I used a shimmer pen on the berries and the highlights of the poinsettia.
The last thing I did was trace a faux border with a black pen and the hill die from the Winterhaven Die Set. Then I added some black dots and faux stitching.
That's it! Thank so much for visiting me. Be sure to head over to the Catherine Pooler Shop and pick up these stamps and dies folks! I truly had a blast working with them and they would be a great addition to your stash!
