One of my Favorite Stamping Techniques.

Happy Sunday, everyone!

Today's actually my Friday so TGIS! LOL! Welcome to another Christmas Card Challenge (Week 9)! We make Christmas cards all year long to make sure we've got more than enough come Holiday season. Please join in!

Week 9's challenge is to make a card using:



One of my favorite techniques is to stamp without black lines. Sometimes, when I want something more challenging, I do this. The result is a very soft image. Perfect for a vintage-themed card, don't ya think?

The trick is to use a light-colored ink. I used Haystack from Unity Stamp. The stamp is from The Greeting Farm (A Cheeky Christmas). The papers are from Graphic 45, and the stickers are from Love Elsie. Used a spica pen for her facial features. It sure was hard to blend without my usual black lines as guides but thinking outside the box is a must for me once in awhile.

Please visit the CCC blog for more info and inspiration! Hope you have a great rest of the week, and I'll see you back here soon! :)

OH MY! no black and coloring...EEEEKKK!!! I've done dark brown but that's about it (need that dark buffer between my "out-of-line" coloring). You're AWESOME at it. She looks oh so good :)

Such a clever technique - you did an awesome job on it too. I don't think I could get away without seeing my black outline though. LOL!!!!
It has a very vintage look to your card and the image just pops it right out.....
Have a super duper day....
