No Line Watercoloring… have you tried it? I recently tried it and made this Teapot card at Kurstan’s all day stamping retreat!! I’ll admit it.. I was intimidated.. but I really do love how this watercolored Tea Together card turned out!
“No Line Watercoloring” basically means that you stamp the image in a super light color, rather than in black, and then you watercolor. When you watercolor over the light outlines, they either just disappear, or, they just kind of fade into the image. The outline doesn’t stand out as it would if stamped in black.
Kurstan had each of us “smoosh” the Highland Heather and Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Spots onto a cello bag (with a Whisper White piece of cardstock inside) then use that as our palette for watercoloring.. what a super easy way to do this with a large group!!
We stamped the images from the Tea Together stamp set #148779 in Highland Heather on watercolor paper, and then painted them in with our Aqua Painter. I was not quite as happy with my teapot as I was with my flowers.. but it was a learning experience and I love my finished card.
I really did want to have time to do a video for you, but all but all 3 of us have been sick and I just haven’t had time to do a video. If you want more info on No Line Watercoloring, you can search for some videos on YouTube. I’ll try to do a video in April.
The Teapot and flowers were die cut with the Tea Time framelits – a free gift choice during Sale-a-Bration 2019!
The die cut teapot and flowers were layered onto Highland Heather Gingham Gala paper, then onto polka dot paper from the Botanical Butterfly deisgner paper pack, then onto Basic Black cardstock and a folded Highland heather base card.
