Yellow, White and Grey in La La Land

This week in La La Land we are using yellow, white and grey to work with. When I saw the colour combo it reminded me of the colours of my children's primary school uniforms so I decided to create accordingly. I have also been wanting to give the "no lines" technique another outing. The softness this technique gives the image is so worth the extra effort it takes to colour - it's amazing how much we rely in those dark lines for guidance and to differentiate between the areas. To achieve this look you need to use a pale ink for stamping or - if you're using a digi image - you have to edit the colour of the lines to a light grey before printing.

Don't forget to check out the La La Land Crafts Blog for more amazing inspiration from the DT.
