Spectrum Noir post - Feint lines

Hello my lovelies.. Friiiday! nearly the weekend! whatever you have planned , I hope its a good one..!
I have a post scheduled over on the Spectrum Noir  blog today, showing you how I colour an image, using a "second" stamping -or feint lines.This takes away the stronger outline and gives your colouring a little more emphasis... its also a little trickier too! But not if you just take your time... 
this is my colouring part way....

...and this is the finished card. I have used my Spectrums, of course. The image is Humphrey "Party Time", the papers are soooo old, lol! They are K&Co Hopscotch.
 Just a simple layout really, matted onto kraft cardstock. The sentiment is from the stamp set,  and I have used my MFT
 die-namics scallop die to cut the contrast scallop. I have stitched the image into its mat, and added lots of dots in IG3,2 & 1 to create a background.
 You can see more detail over on the SN blog...
 All I need to do is add this card to the following challenges.. and get myself off to work..
1.The Perfect Sentiment- masculine birthdays
2.Craft room challenge - Childhood memories
3.Creative Craft challenges- Anything goes
4.Kaboodles Doodles- babies or children
