The “no line” look can be done with about any medium; you just need to have an ink that will “disappear.” I love the no-line ink from Ink on Three for all three of the mediums below; sometimes I use distress or distress oxides for watercolor if I want the lines to fully wash out.
You can also try “second generation” stamping – stamp once on scrap, then again without reinking on your main paper. That should give you a tinted look to the stamp lines. Be careful that whatever ink you use, it doesn’t bleed with the medium. Test appropriately!

First, let’s prove I was doing no-line coloring in January of 2016 before the craze…..lol.
Sandy you always seem to have your finger on the pulse of my paper crafting!!! If I start thinking about a topic like “no-line coloring” I can always count on you to pull great information together on it and put it to the test. Thank you for your teaching and inspiration 🙂
So much great info to take in – thanks! Plus I love Colorado Craft Company products!
wow. This is such an amazing collection of cards! I love your style! I am so not at this level of crafting yet; but someday!
So helpful. Thanks, Sandy!
Beautiful cards. I didn’t know about the special fade ink you use on some of your cards. I bought a light gray for images where I didn’t want a strong outline. Thank you.
Love watching your coloring, painting etc. I learn so much. Thanks for sharing your knowledge.
You are so talented – thanks for sharing!
Your no line cards are wonderful! I have started doing watercolor with stamping and all the lines bothered me. Thanks for the tips!
