No Line Watercoloring Technique

Nolinevideo1

Hello Blogosphere! It's Tiffany with another Video Tutorial for you! Today, I'll be sharing a way to recreate the No Line Coloring method with Watercoloring! For this technique, we'll be stamping our images with the Stamper's Big Brush Pens in Subtle Colors & then coloring with Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils and Gelatos®.

There are so many benefits to using the Stamper's Big Brush Pens:

  • Lightfast, so they don't fade in the sun or over time
  • Odorless, no nasty migraines from fumes
  • Permanent, perfect to Mix & Match with the watercoloring mediums
  • No Bleed-through, so you can stamp or color with these without worrying about the ink bleeding through your cardstock!
  • India Ink

Steampunk Birthday

LisaAdametz-Steampunk-Bday-1

Hi everyone! It's Lisa here with you and I'm sharing a watercolor type of card made with the Gelatos® Steampunk colors. The way that I created it leaves the colors looking much softer than you'd expect, though. The paper itself has a resist embedded into it, which is very cool. Let me show you how:

Smile Card by Lisa

LisaAdametz-Smile-1

Hi there crafty friends! It's Lisa back with another project for ya and, like my DT teamies Tiffany and Rita, I have a project featuring the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils. Talk about ESP, huh?

These pencils are by far the best watercolor pencils I have ever owned in their category. The color is richly pigmented and lightfast and turns into a waterproof color once dry. The leads are glued through the bore of the pencil so that they never break. The triangular shape is ergonomic = so comfortable to work with.  But let me show you a quick card I made with them so you can see for yourself what a dream they are...

Watercolored Animal Stack!

Hello Blogosphere!

It's Tiffany here today and I have a video tutorial showing you how I used my most favorite coloring medium, the Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils, to create this cute birthday card for Lawn Fawn's 5th Birthday!

What's not to love about these awesome pencils? Art GRIP® Aquarelle Watercolor Pencils are so many things.

  1. Water Soluble, so they glide onto wet surfaces!
  2. Waterproof once dry, which is great for adding layers and depth!
  3. Lightfast, so they never fade!
  4. They're as precise or blended as you want them to be!
  5. The leads never break when sharpened.
  6. Their triangular grips ensure they don't roll around on your desk!
  7. You can use them with all of the other mediums in the Faber-Castell® Design Memory Craft® Mix & Match product line!

I could go on & on, but really just watch the video and you'll see just how easy it is to color with these!
