I've been very taken with the projects that I've seen online that use the "No black lines" Copic coloring technique. I saw a killer tutorial over on Lime Tart's blog.
I had only seen people colored this way, so being me, I decided to try this technique using one of my most favorite Bombshell Stamps, the ship from the Homeward Bound set.
Here it is!
I'll definitely be trying this technique again (in fact I have a project on my desk), with some modifications. First off, I need some full sized Memento inkpads since the small pads were a pita for this usage.
So, I stamped using London Fog Memento ink. The gray was a bit too dark, but I worked around it and made the sails gray and the clouds purple 'n pink using BV23, 20, and RV0000. I wasn't happy with the clouds, but it was late so I went to bed. The next morning I looked at it with new eyes and decided to keep going, so I did and am moderately pleased with it. The running lights and brightwork on the ship were touched with Glaze pen for dimension and shine and I used an Inkssentials White pen for the whitecaps/foam on the sea.
The map/compass Kraft paper is from the Ideology Kraft Resist stack. Love that stuff. I made a small sailor's knot using hemp twine and called it done. I will likely add a sentiment on a tag when I decide the recipient and occasion.
Thanks for visiting today.
