Another study in Non-Coloring

Keeping it White..that was my goal for coloring  this lovely bloom from Concord and 9th.
I started this card front panel last November for the coloring challenge with Kathy at The Daily Marker.

Here is where I started...coloring leaves blue and green.

Then I set it aside for several months until I found this video by Sandy, where she shares non-coloring on the same image.

So I jumped in and gave it a go..first with the card I shared in my last post. One large white-ish bloom.

Then I moved on to attempt non-coloring on the panel from back in November.
Here is how it turned out:
A few more blooms left white.
I added a die-cut sentiment and called it done. I was pleased with it.

 Here is the list of Ziggys I used. and here is a chart that seems easier to use than the one below.
 Maybe next time I will make a video:)

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Love is absolutely gorgeous!!! You rock! By the way where did you get the Zig download? I need one, thanks!

    1. Hey Lisa, Thanks for the kind comment. I copy and pasted several of my charts together..not happy with the "searching" I have to do with it because it is not alphabetical OR in numerical order..
      I just found this one.
      It looks MUCH easier to use! Hope it helps you:)

    2. Dina Kowal has a great blog post about Zig markers and also has a free download for a great color chart. Here's her link: http://www.dinakowalcreative.com/2016/08/zig-clean-color-markers-tips-and.html.

  2. Laura Jane, this is amazing, the non colouring was just perfect and adding those multicoloured spots all around is a winning look and finishing off with the 'beautiful YOU' sentiment takes it to perfection. Thank you so much for joining us at The Flower Challenge Aileen DT
