No Line Coloring: Pencils on Gray + A Mele Kalikimaka Holiday

Hello friends! Today I have a no-line colored pencil tutorial for you, which I had shared on the Simon Says Stamp blog a while back.

This was a Studio Monday video and I wanted to post it here for you to enjoy, as it was one of my favorite Holiday projects of this year, featuring the Mele Kalikimaka stamp set! I hope you enjoy!

How I Made It
No Line Coloring: Pencils on Gray + A Mele Kalikimaka Holiday

If you know me, I adore the ocean and anything related to it. This Mele Kalikimaka set is my most-favorite stamp set from the Fun & Festive collection and I could not wait to create a card with it! The wreath is made up of stunning seashells, seagrass and starfish, completed by a giant bow. I wanted to use nautical colors, as that would complement the red I used for the bow perfectly.

To color the wreath, I used Prismacolor colored pencils on gray toned paper. I achieved the no-line effect by stamping the image with Fog ink from Simon.

The beautiful Ornamental stamp set and Merry script die by CZ Design fit perfectly over the bow; I tipped the script greeting to follow the flow of the bow in the top right corner.

Finally, I finished this “Christmas by the Sea” card off by adding a few Christmas Magic sequins and Pine Needle die cuts around the wreath, which really filled everything in nicely!

I hope today’s video leaves you inspired to create a nautical holiday card of your own! Be sure to watch the video at the top of this post to see how it all came together!
