My new inktense results...

Hey Saturday campers....I was going to save this for my next SN DT card however I had it made and I am quite chuffed with it so decided to share it just now.....need to make another DT card now...oops!

So this is my first attempt at colouring with Derwent Inktense pencils and although it did take me ages to colour, it very therapeutic!  I have been admiring the fabby colouring that the lovely Keeley does with her inktense pencils and she totally inspired should check out her blog!!

The stamp is called Raven from Sugar Nellie ( sadly no longer available) which I watercoloured with the inktense pencils....I started off with a small amount of colour and just up the layers....The papers are from The Sweet Shoppe called Pumpkin Spice....they are so pretty and perfect for Autumn, and I layered them onto kraft card and did my usual doodling around the edges.  I added a piece of pale blue lace underneath. The flower is my beautiful die-namics gerbera which I cut out in white and then coloured to match the papers. I made the bow and button match the flower and added 2 silver leaf charms to that....hope you likey!

Lovely, shame she isn't available any more, I have her and love her but not used her for ages. Love the colouring and the blue and brown are some of my faves. That gerbera is lovely too.

Tracy said...

Fi you have coloured her just gorgeous, love the colours and it is so pretty. I tried a few times before feeling a bit happier, found it easier to take the colour from the pencil with a damp brush. Might be a while before I do face and hair :0) thanks for stoppng by, hugs XXX
