Hey crafty people, it’s Tasha back with some more Saturday Inspiration for you! Today I’m sharing this complete opposite of last week’s post; no line colouring on Trinity Stamps Love You Bunches which was long, intense and SO MUCH fun!!!
I’m feeling like the creative slump is retreating and I am super excited to get back to crafting again! Thank goodness for that!!
What Is No Line Colouring?
Ok, so no line colouring is just the term we use when you colour in a stamped image without any of the stamped lines remaining visible.
So rather than stamping this in a deep, dark black like I might usually do, I stamped it with a really pale, cream ink.
I chose this colour because I knew it was light enough to be completely overtaken by the colouring I was planning, but it was also going to show up enough that I could see what I was colouring.
You need an ink that will walk that very fine line!!!
I coloured the image with Copic markers, and it really is a trial in being patient but persistent.
There was a point, no actually, several points where I nearly gave up and trashed it, but I forced myself to carry on and I really am so glad that I did because I love what I ended up creating!
I started with the larger orange flower, just colouring it one petal at a time, making sure not to use too much dark colour right away and remembering to keep your highlights, follow the movement in the petal and add natural shadows.

What To Do When Something Goes Wrong?!?!
We’ve all done that right? When you spend ageees on something and stuff it up right at the end?
Oh man! That seriously SUCKS!
I hated the colour that I ended up with on one of the leaf types, like REALLY hated it!
So, I cut them off!!
I wasn’t intending to fussy cut the image, I planned on keeping it single layer, but needs must! So I fussy cut the whole image, removing any bits that I wasn’t happy with, and a few extra bits that were just too fiddly to cut.
Then to fix up any of the edges that weren’t too great, I just used one of the markers I had used to colour any of the white edges!
Exactly the same way that I would usually colour the edges black when fussy cutting a black outlined image.
Assembling My Card…
I used the Pinkfresh Simple Diamond cover die to cut a panel of Neenah 80lb and then glued this straight down onto another panel of Neenah 80lb.
I popped the floral image up on some foam adhesive, then I stamped a sentiment from the Love You Bunches set in black ink and fussy cut it out.
A few clear jelly hearts from Trinity Stamps, were the perfect embellishments to finish it off.
Be kind to yourself.
You can check out a super fun reels video that I have done for this card over on Instagram!
I will be back at the same time next week for more inspiration!
