How To Get A No-Line Look With Watercolor Pencils- Lydia’s Crafty Corner

by Lydia Evans

Hello there, everyone! Happy Friday! Lydia here. Today, I'll be sharing a super easy way to get a no-line watercolor look using watercolor pencils.

I started by stamping the Paint-A-Flower: Paeonia Japonica Layering Stamp onto a piece of watercolor cardstock using Vanilla Cream Ink. I then used watercolor pencils to trace around the image and color it in. I used Coral Bliss and Maple Yellow Watercolor Pencils for the flowers, Orange Cream, Maple Yellow, and a touch of Grass Field Watercolor Pencils for the flower centers, and Grass Field, Shadow Creek, and Fresh Lemon Watercolor Pencils for the leaves.

You can see in the video how easy it is to use watercolor pencils to trace and then use a wet paintbrush to move the color around. You can also take color directly from the pencil itself using a wet paintbrush.

To see how this card came together, please watch the video below or over on YouTube:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

I love this technique. Will have to check my colored pencils to see if water color or not. This seems very easy to do and loved the finished project. So very pretty.
