Today I am following a trend :)) Now all over blogland and Facebook groups there has been a new trend starting!! And I just had to give it a try . Talented crafters on the Make It Crafty Facebook Group have been colouring their stamped images with no black lines....and instead using evry faint grey ones.
So I had to see if it was as hard as it looked ...I do like a challenge!!
So for my Quixotic Paperie DT card this week I stamped an image from The Greeting Farm which I have had for ages but it has not seen any love as yet! This one is Oliver from the 'Journey Set'. He is coloured with copics and a little amount of pencil for the sky background. I used (as recommended by Elaine) an Adrionack Ink Pad 'Lake Mist' to get the light grey lines on the image. Once coloured it creates a really nice soft, pastel effect on the image. This is a technique I would love to try again and perfect a little more .
The papers I used are Fancy Pants 'Beach Bum' 6 x6 pad. I have given them all the distressed treatment. I have also used a Tim Holtz journalling ticket and a Tim Holtz Metal Hinge Clip.
Before I go have you checked out the fabulous and quirky new stamps from Octopode??? A few have sneaked into my basket!
Thanks for popping by today!
