No Black Lines

The challenge for the next two weeks at Fairy Fun Fridays was a difficult one for me:  No Black Lines.  The idea is to print or stamp your image at about 25% of the normal level of black that you would use.  I think the result looks cool, but I was so difficult to colour!  Anyway, it turned out alright.  I wanted to take a black marker to go over her eyes, but I was so afraid that I would mess it up that I just left it.

The cute image is Dotty by Prairie Fairy Designs.  I coloured her with Copic markers.  The trick with the no black lines is to use grey Copics.  For instance, around the nose and under the chin, I added some C2 (light grey) to accentuate the shadows and therefore shape around her face.
