Daydreaming with Inktense Pencils

July 20, 2015

Hi, my crafty friends! Today I'm featuring the new Gerda Steiner Designs clear stamp set "How Are EWE?".  The following video shows you how I color with Inktense pencils:


As you can see, and I'm saying this as somebody who has not a lot of experience with Inktense pencils but is still experimenting, the trick is to work in layers. And also to only use very little of the pencil. As the name implies, the colors are very intense and can go a long way. If you want to make sure that you have room for your highlights, only apply a little color, and then build up from there.


I also hand drew the border and intentionally made it a little bit quirky because I find that can be more interesting than straight ruler lines. And of course I had to add some sequins to the card; a little bit of bling can never hurt :-)

Thanks for stopping by today and for watching! If you liked the video, please subscribe to my YouTube channel and leave me a thumbs up. I really appreciate it!

March 22, 2019

Happy Friday! It's finally Spring!! Easter will be here soon and I just love this bunny from the new Easter Bunnies stamp set.

First, I created a background for the bunny by die-cutting a large egg and inking a few clouds and grass with Distress Inks.

For a little extra interest, I adhered the egg to a piece of white cardstock slightly overlapping the edge and then die-cut using a stitched rectangle...
