How to Use Line Art in Greeting Cards – It’s Easy + Video!

I have an easy idea to share today, why not add a ‘line art’ design to your cards!  For some people the idea of colouring can be daunting, I love to colour and for me, to leave the space blank can be daunting…

Both cards today use the new Painted Stripes Stamp Set from Ellen Hutson.  I kept the basic design very similar but changed up the floral elements.  Starting with some sweet flowers from Everyday Doodles and a watery Distress Inked background.

Then I added a sequin from the EBE Butterfly Mix, I didn’t realise that there were butterflies in there (doh!).  I also added a sentiment from the Everyday Punnies Stamp Set.

Now for the ‘line art’ design, and what could be more beautiful than the Mondo Sakura….   sigh!

I used the coordinating die set to add the sentiment as well as some sweet Clear Droplets.

Line art can look amazing as flowers but you can even use an image, check out this example HERE.  I hope you are inspired to give this idea a try, I’ll be back real soon, until then stay wonderful!  Hugs

  1. Beautiful idea using line art, it looks so exquisite and very pretty too. I love both designs and shows to different styles you can create. Great video! I always enjoy watching your videos. X

  2. thanks for some great inspiration – have loved that mondo sakura stamps forever and now may have to break down and buy after seeing your card!

  3. I love the first one, it’s really pretty and gorgeous! Love the second too. This one is more sophisticated.such versatility. I’ll enjoy trying your techniques. Thank you.

  4. Particularly loved the second card. How clever of you to stamp the gorgeous flower twice. Great idea. That blue ink is lovely, as is the flower, but I don’t need it… I don’t need it….. I don’t really need it….

  5. love, LOve, LOVE the pinks, Therese! But I know you’ll have me loving the blue just as much after watching… you do have a way of casting a spell on me! [and now I have another CP ink on my list!] xx

  6. Both cards are gorgeous Therese. I agree the whole process looked a lot easier with the Mini Mistie.
    Job well done!
    Keep up the great work.

  7. Sweet doodlie blooms in those soft pinks, Therese … and such an elegant sakura in line art form against those painted stripes … what a beauty! So pleased you got a Mini Misti just for us … I’m enjoying you using it … thank you!! Hugs, Anita 🙂

Thanks for visiting! I'd love to hear what you have to say.
