No line Colouring

The "No line" technique has been the latest way of colouring so I decided to try my hand at it.

Image used - Magnolia Tilda (Little London 2013 collection)

First, I stamped with Memento - Desert sand(MD804). I thought this colour is the closest I can get to skin colour & light enough for me to colour over it with other colours.

Final result

I realised that because there's no black lines to guide me during the colouring process so there is lesser tolerance for error as in I can't hide behind any black stamped lines or do any forms of amendments with my colourless blender. I needed to also put more emphasis on all highlights & shadows to make the image pop.

It's my 1st try so maybe that's why I took a little longer than I usually but I absolutely love the way it turned out. What do u think? :)
