Altenew August 2022 Bold & Beautiful Collection Release Blog Hop & Giveaway ($300 total in prizes)!

Do you want to create a different look for the same florals? It’s easy to do by simply changing up the way you colour them……

But first, this post is part of a Hop celebrating a new release from Altenew so you should have arrived here from NICHOL’s wonderful Blog.

Today I wanted to share that you can really ‘stretch’ your stamps by changing the way that you colour them! These flowers from the Dazzling Dahlia Stamp Set are very similar, but they look different on these card examples.

Idea #1 – Line Colouring

I used the same coloured Artist Markers to make the comparison was easier. But you could use whatever medium you prefer.

Line colouring easy to do, especially if you are new to alcohol markers. I also love to mix my mediums and used a couple of Woodless Coloring Pencils to add just a little extra depth.

I added a subtle background using the Linear Spiral stamp.

Idea #2 – No-Line Colouring

Now for a completely different look. To me, no-line colouring gives a softer and more realistic look.

Simply stamp the image with a light coloured ink that will not be visible once the colouring is complete. Make sure that the ink is compatible with the medium you choose and keep the stamp nearby so you can see where the lines should be, if you get lost lol.

And you can always add in details, like the flower centre, with a fine liner after the colouring is complete. This time I added a bold embossed background as well as a sentiment from the One-Go Birthday Greetings Set.

  1. Just fabulous. Two absolutely gorgeous cards. That background stamp is amazing and I love the colours that you used. They co-ordinate so well. Thank you Therese. You’re always an inspiration ❤️

  2. I am so intimidated to be guesting on this hop with you and now that I’ve seen your cards, I’m even more so. We had similar ideas with the no-line and line of the same image but I used the stencils with mine. Yours are gorgeous using the Artist Markers.

  3. Two cards, completely gorgeous! You do amaze and delight, my friend – especially when you pull out those no-line skills of yours! x
    =]

  4. I love your cards Therese. I am really loving and wanting that Linear Spiral Stamp. There has been so many techniques with it on this hop and I am thrilled. I look forward to owning that one.

  5. I love the no-line look but I’m rubbish at it. Thanks for sharing this gorgeous inspiration.

  6. These are just so stunning Therese, I truly need lessons in no line colouring such a difference it makes.

  7. So great to see the difference between a no line and outline result. Both are beautiful but the softness of the no line image makes me want to try more of it.

  8. So classic & elegant!! I love the flower on the geometric background too! Gorgeous!!
