Have you had those times where you’ve seen a new technique, or at least a technique that’s new to you, and couldn’t hardly wait to try it? That’s how it was for me when I saw the No-Line Piercing Technique on Splitcoast Stampers.
I decided to use it for this week’s color challenge at Pals Paper Arts. This was a tough challenge for me because I use a lot of brights or pastels in my cardmaking.
The No-Line Technique is stamping an image on the back of the Watercolor Paper and pierce around it. That gives you a textured outline to color in.
The technique allowed me to use the required colors, but by using them with the Aqua Painter, I was able to tone them down into softer shades.
My Mom’s dear neighbor is moving away this year. My Mom is sad about it, but I think I’m even sadder. They look out for each other and check in on each other every morning. They even have a shade up/shade down code! Her neighbor worries about her, so this is how she knows in the morning that my Mom is up and okay. I have to laugh, though, because the code can has been hacked by my Mom. If she gets up in the middle of the night, she’ll put the shade up so she can sleep in and her neighbor thinks she’s up!
I know my Mom will want a very special card to give her at her going-away party, and I think this one will be perfect.
I hope you will join us at Pals Paper Arts to see what the Resident Artists have created to inspire you to play along with us this week!
