no line coloring with honey bee

A few tips from my first no line coloring project with Copic markers and Honey Bee stamps!

Happy Friday friends and welcome to Honey Bee's Bee Bold release hop! This release is full of so many great new sets and one of my favs is the Chin Up Buttercup set! 
I've had lots of fun practicing coloring in yellow to create Buttercups but this set was just begging me to color it in blush, Poppy flower tones. Here's a little quick video about my no-line process:


To finish this card, I stamped a little field of poppies (buttercups) to create a background. I layered my colored poppies on top, along with a sentiment created with Honey Bee Bee Bold Alpha and "just because" from the Honey Bee Cheerful Sentiments stamp set.

For the second card, I stamped the poppies directly onto my card panel and no need to do any masking, just color accordingly! Love that shortcut! The sentiment is Bee Bold Alpha and "you" from the Thinking Of You die.

If you haven't had a chance do the rest of the hop, here's the lineup:
And make sure you leave comments along the way for a chance to win one of two $50 Honey Bee gift certificates! (Winners will be announced on this page of the HBS blog on August 10th.)
Thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day!!!
Carly

I also have a black thumb, so I got quite a giggle out of your comment about killing cactus. Been there done that. Lol. I’m horrible with copics, but you made it look easy enough for me to give it a good try. I love the no line coloring effect. Beautiful cards.

Hey..Your flowers are beautiful!! I can even begin to color and shade but you are doing a fantastic job!!

Thanks for the tip about die-cutting before
coloring-I wouldn’t have thought of that.
