Hello! Lisa here and I have another Christmas card made using the Letraset AquaMarkers, this time I used the "no line" colouring technique.

I find no line colouring to be very challenging, this is the first time I've not scrapped the image I was colouring LOL. I think with animals and birds you have a bit more room for errors and don't have to worry as much with getting facial features etc spot on - which is why I choose this "Winter Birds" stamp from Stampendous.

You stamp the image in a light colour ink (I used Anitique Linen distress ink) and then colour the image. It gives a more realistic look as you don't get the black outlines.

I also used Papermilldirect Buff Card and Pearlised Ivory Paper (which is under the gold stripe washi tape - gives it a nice shimmer).
