Little big storm.....

I know I know Thanksgiving is long gone, but that doesn't mean I still can't share some cute adorable images from By LORi Designs!!! This cutie, "Little Big Storm", can be found here! Love the name! Since I've been without an office/slash craft room I've been doing alot of colouring. I've been experimenting with a new 'no line' technique (which I love) where you lighten the lines of your image so there are no 'harsh' black lines. It gives the image a real nice soft look, almost painted. I first saw this technique over at Make it Crafty, then my friend Melanie coloured an image using this techique and I was completely blown away that I had to try it! I have a bunch of images coloured up on white paper using this 'no-line' way of colouring. I'm just waiting to get all my craft stuff unpacked so I can make some cards with them. New carpet this Friday - YAY! I will be posting them before the new year. Anyway I tried it on some kraft paper with my copics and prismacolour pencils and this was the result:
It was a little trickier using kraft cardstock for some reason, but it still turned out cute. How can it not with those sweet images!?! My first picture really doesn't do it much justice, it almost gets lost in the cardstock. I'm gonna say it looks aged and 'vintagey' lol...it really looks better in real life! :)

Anyway, make sure to swing by and check out the sweet Lollipop Girls and see what fabulous inspiration they have to show you today!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
