No line coloring

Well I tried my hand at no line coloring again, although I can see a bit of lines still but there is a funny story behind this one.

I stamped the image with distress ink planning on watercoloring the image, Well I had bought some Spectrum Aqua markers and also some Illustrator markers which are alcohol based not water based, well yep you guessed it I grabbed the Illustrator markers by mistake when I was going to color this, I just couldn't figure out why the ink wasn't blending well and I even added some directly too the flowers and finally gave up and added some distress inks to them and after I was all done and had come back to it after some housework and was putting away the markers I realized I was using the wrong ones, I am surprised it came out as well as it did.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and I hope you have a lovely weekend!

You know, I really like this style of coloring with just the very light lines. It is really quite a happy accident with the markers!!!

Oh, Connie! This is gorgeous, and I love the image and how you've colored it! I just love when "happy mistakes" occur like this one, and what a beautiful die against the DP. I also love the lace and that beautiful tag. What a very special birthday card! Have a beautiful weekend! Hugs and love! xoxo

It came out absolutely beautiful and I like the "almost" no-line coloring. Who among us hasn't done a goof before? Not I! pssst: I received happy mail today! I seem to have two email addresses for you and wasn't sure which one to use, but wanted to say you're the SWEETEST! Maybe you can let me know about your email? Hugs!

It did turn our very pretty, Connie! If I didn't know otherwise, I would think it was porcelain! Sometimes mistakes can be beautifully surprising. Hugs xo Karen

There is no hint of the problems you had in the making of this card, Connie. It is so pretty. So many times our mistakes turn out better than what we had planned. Love this card.
