Video : No Line Watercolouring!

Back with another video today and I decided to do a little bit of ‘no line watercolouring’.  This gorgeous Poppy Gem stamp from Penny Black is quite large so I decided not to complicate my colouring too much and kept it fairly simple.  I like the subtle tones but it could do with a couple more layers of colour, to add a bit of depth, but it still took me 1 1/2 hours to create, so what started simple….    lucky this is how I love to spend my time lol.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at Youtube.

Not so sure on the bow ether, although I do like the gold highlight….   maybe a gold strip of cardstock would have worked better, what do you think?

Hope your day is turning out to be an awesome one, Hugs

  1. I agree, it’s beautiful! I like the bow, it seems to tie in beautifully. I have been wanting to try this technique out but I have not yet been brave enough!!

  2. So very pretty Therese! Love watching the process – something to learn each time! – and your snippets of paper added at the end – a great idea!

  3. Gorgeous! The pp’s along the bottom are totally perfect – love it! My Misti arrives today – hurry up Mr Mailman!!!

  4. Really beautiful no line watercoloring, Therese! Love your color palette, too! Thanks so much for sharing the video with us…I always enjoy watching you create!

  5. Therese that is just gorgeous. I’ve watched the video 3 times – your colouring is perfect and love how you did the centres of the flowers.

  6. LOVE it!!!
    These are so my colors….still have to try the No line water coloring…
    have a great day,

  7. Really lovely card! I like the bow!
    I have to smile when you laugh in your videos! Thank you.

  8. This is just so pretty, you picked the perfect colors and watercolored it very well. I have not had a huge amount of luck with the no line watercolor, but I may just have to try to find a similar sized image and give it another try. The blue you used for the sky is really nice. TFS!

  9. So beautiful. Those blues are so calm and serene, and I love them on this card. And the poppies…stunning. I do like the gold thread, too; it works well with your colors and the delicate poppy stems. Fantastic card!!! Love this.

  10. Really pretty. Such a lovely and calm colour scheme. I haven’t tried no line colouring yet – I think I’ll have to leave it to the real artist’s such as yourself!
