How Changing the way you colour an image changes the look of a Card
I wanted to have a go at the the whole No-line Colouring Technique so I basically replicated a card that I already created. I mean let’s face it – this no-line colouring is kind of scary. The lines disappear and before you know it, you don’t know what you’re colouring anymore so I needed a basis of where & what I was doing.
What I got was two cards with the exact same design but two completely different looks! So I wanted to share with you how the way you colour the card can completely change the look of the card. If you want to find out more how I did the No-line Colour there is a little How To after the images.

No-line Colouring How To
- Stamp the image in a pale colour. I used Linen Exclusive Ink – it gave me a very pale outline that disappears once you colour over it.
- With your darkest colour ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Marker, add the shadows. This helps a lot when the lines start to “disappear”. For the Flowers I used Cherry Pink and with the leaves some were done with Vivid Green & others with Sap Green.
- Now with the lightest ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Markers, fill in the rest of the area. Making sure you blend in the lighter colours with the darker colours.
- If you need certain Features to stand out like the centre of the flowers you can draw them baack in – I did use the Black ShinHan™ Touch Twin™ Marker but I could easily have used the Marvy® Uchida® LePen™ Journaling Pen
- For the Butterfly I went with a gradient look instead of colouring in the different sections of the Butterfly wings & kept that gradient look in the standard colouring for the other card.
Well I hope you enjoyed this idea & how to tips & that you have a go at the No-line Colouring Technique.
