If you think about it, the Paper Layering dies are a great use for no-line coloring techniques. There’s no stamping directly involved, and it’s easy to follow the cut lines for coloring.
For todays card, I used the adorable Paper Layering Bear with Frame for my no-line coloring.
Since I wasn’t intending to do any heavy watercoloring, I die cut the bear from regular cardstock. However, if you want to add more color or/and get a more blended look, watercolor or Bristol paper would work well.
I colored the scarf in using Evergreen Bough and Cracked Pistachio Distress Inks, and colored the eyes, nose and ears with ZIG Black and Pale Pink.
I backed the scarf with some Pool layering paper, so that I could add some glitter to the hearts with Stickles.
For the background, I inked the Wave Pattern Background in Versamark, then Mint Julep, and stamped it on Mint layering paper. I added clear Sparkle embossing powder, heat set it, and adhered the bear to the cardstock on foam adhesive.
I couldn’t stop playing with this bear and trying different color schemes – I hope you have as much fun with it as I did, and thanks for stopping in!
God bless, and have a great weekend!
