Saturated Canary Queen of Hearts using No Lines Technique

Good morning! I am so excited to share this card with you today... it is a first for me and I had so much fun doing it! I was blog surfing and two blogs in particular inspired this card. I always love Alyces' work over at Kit and Clowder her colouring is superb and often uses this no lines technique.  Well after playing on the computer for over an hour, I managed to lighten the outline of four images and this one was one of them! She is, of course, a Saturated Canary image called Queen Of Hearts. At the moment, Krista is deleting some of her digis and has discounted a heap by 50% ....  go to her blog here for the link to all the images discounted plus the code you will need. So the second blog that inspired this card was Created by Silvie Z.  I am NOT even going to attempt to be as good as these two ladies- their work is amazing, but I am happy to be inspired by them and try new things!  This here is a shaped card, which I have done previously BUT I have always been limited with overhanging embellishments as I put my cards in boxes... so... I made a smaller shaped card and then was ab;e to take embellishments beyond the card.  Even my husband went wow when he saw it!

So, onto the card.   The card itself is cut with Spellbinders Grand labels Four (the smallest one in the set fits through my bigshot).  The DP is by Little Yellow Bicycle called Just Because.  The heart die cut is also a Spellbinders called Lace Hearts. The swirl die cut is by Magnolia. The image is coloured with copics using the no lines technique.  This is my first attempt, and although it is not perfect, I am stoked with the end result! I will definitely be using this technique more often! I have stamped little hearts and dots using a small Stampin Up stamp- from a set of four, but I dont know the name of the set.  The sentiment stamp is from a clear set by Heidi Grace called Quotes. I have used a variety of flowers Wild Orchid Crafts and from my LSS.  The little pearl and rhinestone button on the swirl is from ebay. The bunch of organza is actually a flower scrunched up cut out using Tim Holtz's Tattered Florals die.
