INVENTORY CHALLENGE No. 62 - no lines...


                         


Happy friday Friends,
For our 62nd inventory challenge and last one of this year, as we take a break for the Holiday period, Christina, our team mates and I have chosen to explore the No Line coloring technique. I had seen Zoe's coloring projects... but I never received the "call" to explore it! So, this week was my first attempt at stamping an image with pale ink, and being challenged to make the lines disappear... Although I am happy with the results, I did not like the experience at all, first because as you color, you loose all your reference points; it is also difficult to make any accents  and create shadows as the lines disappeared... actually, I don't think I will repeat the experience!

Bon vendredi,
Le thème de notre 62e et dernier défi de 2011, puisque nous prenons un congé pour la période des fêtes, est l'image SANS LIGNE.  J,avais vu la réalisation de Zoe avec cette technique, mais bien que jolie, elle ne m'interpellait pas. Alors cette semaine, je me suis lancée... bien que je sois contente du résultat, je ne crois pas que je vais répéter cette expérience. Honnêtement, je n'ai pas aimé perdre mes repères, car les lignes s'effacent rapidement, et il est difficile de faire les ombrages, et d,accentuer. 



Here is my card...
Voilà ma carte..

I stamped Winter Tilda with Desert Sand Memento ink on X-press blending card, and colored with copics, all the accents were done with prismacolor, too afraid that the colors would blead. I used perfect pearl around my image to create the snow effect. I stamped  and embossed little swirls around my image with Vintage Garden Stamps from STempleglede, then, I distressed the borders with Tea Dye, Peeled paint and Tattered rose. I matted my image with Spellbinders scalloped circle shape, sprayed Goosebumps on the green cardstock to make it glittery and glossy, and used AC white glitter cardstock under it.

J'ai imprimé Winter Tilda avec de l'encre Memento, Desert Sand, sur X-press blending card; j'ai colorié avec les Copics, mais les accents, et certaines ombres sont faits avec les prismacolor. N,ayant plus de repères, j,avais peur de dépasser! autour de mon image, le perfect pearl donne l'impression d'une petite neige qui tombe. Avec  le jeu Vintage Garden de Stempleglede, j'ai embossé des petites fleurs, puis  j'ai encré les rebords  avec les encres disress, Tea Dye, Peeled paint et tattered rose. J,ai endossé l'image avec une découpe spellbinders, un carton vert enduit de Goosebumps, pour qu'il brille et du carton brillant de AC cardstock.



The lovely cluster is a branch of holly, offered to my by a very dear friend. behind I added some decorative mesh in red and green, and a big pink bow.
Le joli bouquet est composé d'une branche de gui offert par une bonne amie, derrière j'ai utilisé du jute (?) rouge et vert , et une grosse boucle rose accompagne le tout. 





We finally have a french manufacturer Lime citron who has put up 3 beautiful round stamps with french wishes.  I have printed and embossed it, then added a scalloped shape in glitter cardstock behind.
Le sentiment est de Lime citron, enfin, des sentiments ronds en français"; je l'ai imprimé avec de l'encre Artichaut toujours, puis embossé.

I used the wonderful Basic Grey collection, Nordic holiday, in the 6 X 6 size, that is available at Scrapbook ta vie.
La superbe collection de papier est de Basic grey et s'appelle Nordic Holiday, j'ai utilisé la petite tablette 6 X 6 et est disponible chez SCRAPBOOK TA VIE. 





We will be back on January 6, with more challenges, meanwhile I invite you to visit my team mates and admire their creations. Have a lovely holiday period, drive safely and have lots of fun! Be sure to visit Scrapbook ta vie blog, we are giving away a wonderful blog cand for the Holidays
