No Lines?

No black lines is the the challenge this week at Make it Colourful and this is the first time I've tried it, though the facebook group have been playing around with this technique for a few weeks.  I used a light ink to stamp Tilda, (London Fog Memento) , stamped off on paper first to remove some of the colour , then stamped on card.  The Mushroom background was altered in photoshop by reducing the transparency to about 20%.    Difficult to colour?  Certainly more challenging and you do need to think about it a lot more, we really rely on those lines. It helps to have a copy of the image in full strength to follow when you get lost! LOL! 

The background is Whimsical mushroom from MIC and the chippie dragonflies are  also MIC and I love these beasties for embellishing , they seem to go with so many things.   
The paper is BG Wisteria  and cardstock is SU river rock . 

If you aren't aware, Make it Crafty has a new gallery HERE for entering the challenges so we can see the cards and leave comments easier.

Awesome work Viv - you forget how much your eye's rely on those black lines - I certainly hadn't given it a thought till seeing your beautiful card.

Very clever card Viv. The mushroom looks so real! It looks tricky. I am not sure I am up to it! Love the dragonfly embellies too.
