No-line pencil colouring Card Process overview

To start off, trim down a piece of kraft card to 1/4″ smaller than an A2 card. Select a few floral stamps and arrange them into one corner of the panel – the stamps I used here are from the Altenew Floral Frame stamp set. Using a watermark ink like versamark, stamp these images onto the card panel. You could mask the florals if you find this easier, but as I was going to colour this in, I didn’t worry about lines/stamps overlapping as this would be covered up once coloured.

Once my whole design was stamped, I used a selection of pencils to colour in the image adding different shades to create depth and dimension. The pencils I used for this card were a selection of Polychromos. I used a white pencil for the highlight areas. Next, stamp and emboss a sentiment in white embossing powder and to finish off add a few Tonic Nuvo drops in colour corresponding shades.

No-line pencil colouring Card - finishing the off the card:

To finish this card off I added a funny sentiment from the Narky Finishing Sentiments stamp set. The sentiment ‘This card was made by someone trying to raise pennies to fund their crafting addiction!’ can fit so many crafts and is the perfect addition to add to the back of your cards!

  • Hi Verity.
    I notice that you often use what you call A2 size – which is 60cm x 42cm in English measurements – a bit big for a card! So I guess this is an American size?
    Can you let me know the English equivalent please? Thanks,

  • Oh, by the way, I LOVE this card – I should have led with that, sorry!! :o) Clare x
