Hi Everyone,

This image called Fishin' Friends by the awesome Crissy Armstrong was a May release and I just love him.  I have coloured this one up with my Inktense, I will have a Copic version in July as we are using this image for our July class.  So stay tuned for that version.

Little Jack and Bobbin Snoozin

Hi Everyone,

Today I have Little Jack and Bobbin Snoozin to share with you.  I coloured this image using Inktense pencils, the list of colours is provided below.  We will have the sets available on Friday but the single pencils are already in the store.  I have coloured on watercolour paper using Staz On ink.  I used the Camp-A-Lot 6 x 6 pad from Bo Bunny.  I know this pad was designed with camping in mind but it is full of great papers for the guys!

If you have never tried these pencils before they are amazing.  99% of the shading on this card and all the other cards I have done with Inktense come from just using one colour of pencil.  This is one image that I used a lot of colours on.  I wanted to see just how many I could use on one image...LOL!
