It has taken some time but finally I have sat down to take a video of my no lines technique, which is the technique of stamping your stamp with a lighter ink than black. It leaves faint lines and when you colour they look like they disappear.
You can see the very first image I coloured here and then the technique swept across the craft world with many crafters now colouring using this method as the results can often be stunning!
The magnolia stamp in this video took about 1.5 hours to colour so rather than bore you for an hour I have sped up the video. I have shared a few tips along the way that I hope will be helpful.
I have included all the details and colours at the beginning of the video if you would like to follow along.

Here is the card I made:
And here is a close up. Before creating the card I decided to touch up a few areas where I wanted a little extra depth and clarity using a dark brown and dark purple pencil. Very sharp so that I could get into tiny spaces and clean some areas up.
I had a lot of fun making the video and was tapping my foot along to the music by Tim McMorris so I hope you enjoy it too! AND you may even have a bit of a chuckle at the end. :)
