Evening all, chilly enough?  Brrrrrrrrr.

Anyhoo, I had a little play yesterday afternoon with the no-lines technique.  I tried this once before with the Distress Inks and learned a valuable lesson so this time I was more careful.  Unlike with pens, you do still get lines with the Distress Inks but the lines absorb the colour of the ink you are painting with - so you need to be ultra careful as to which section you do with what colour ink!

This isn't perfect by any means, but it is certainly better than the first one I attempted!

I've used LOTV's Playtime Puppy - what a cutie
The sentiment and babygro are from the LOTV Babies Companion set 
Patterned papers are Dovecraft Back to Basics IV
Matting layer is white card edged with ProMarker
Pearls are from stash

Colours have distorted in the photo process so sorry about that, the heart on the babygro is pink!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Your no-lines is lovely. I've been experimenting with the DI painting and found like you that the stamped ink picks up the paint. Gorgeous card, and such a sweet image.
