No-line gel pen colouring

Chapter: Projects   Series: Bookmarks & Cards

The Uni-Ball Signo range of gel pens are so wonderfully juicy and smooth flowing. For this project, I’m using a set of 0.7mm DX pens in pastel colours.

Really gelly good!

I stamped the images in a faint colour then traced and coloured them. I hand lettered using the blue pen as well. Full details below.


  1. Die cut the circles with a circle die. My die makes 3.75″ wide circles.
  2. Stamp the image with the Desert Sand ink.
  3. Trace and colour the images.
    TIP — The gel ink stays wet for a little while so to avoid smearing, start tracing from one side to the other to prevent crossing paths. After tracing leave it aside for 2 or 3 minutes to dry.

  4. Write the sentiments. Again leave it to dry.
  5. Add hearts and dots around the sentiments. Leave to dry.
  6. Stick down sequins, enamel and blue pearl dots.
  7. Pad around each circle with a blue ink pad. I used the Aegean Blue colour.
  8. Punch a hole and string a piece of twine.
