Inspiration: 26+ Implied Line (No Line Coloring) Tutorials

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!
