Recently I gave in to my temptations and purchased the Derwent Inktense Color Pencils. It is not cheap, as compared to my Classic Faber Castell color pencils and while i am trying to save up to get Prisma Color Pencils, Inktense was something extra if i had. So i purchased the box of 12 colors instead and happily skipped home.
The colors were sooooo vibrant and it needed some getting use to. The above image is by Wild Rose Studio and the grey was picked up with a wet paintbrush directly from the pencil tip. Had to use alot of water to water it down and lighten it. I actually added Clear Wink A Stella over the flowers but it is a pity my camera couldn't pick the shimmer up. The sentiment is from Mama Elephant "Thank You" stamp set.
Add a dot of glue in the middle of the Martha Stewart punch Butterfly to pop the wings up and give it a dimensional feel.
