For the Love of Inktense Pencils

Lately, I've been working with the different color mediums I have in my creative stash.  I've owned my set of Inktense pencils for a while and only used them a handful of times.  In an effort to stretch my creative muscles, I pulled these pencils from the drawer and set about using them a bit this past week.  The Mother's Day card from Wednesday's post was also done with these lovely pencils.  Let's get to the card details. 


I started this card panel by stamping a repeating pattern with the WPlus9 Beautiful Bouquets Mums stamp using VersaFine ink onto Bristol Smooth Cardstock.


I started with the blue background using Sea Blue.  I layered in a few lines of color and then brought in clean water, adding more color as needed.  You can easily add color to wet areas by taking a wet brush to the tip of the pencil, picking up the pigment and then applying to the paper as needed.


I used all three of the greens in the set, Leaf Green, App;e Green and Teal Green, to create variation in the leaves.  Each type of leaf is a combination of two colors.  The berries are a blend of Fuchsia and Poppy Red, while the small pink flowers are Fuchsia.


The yellow mums are a base of Sun Yellow with highlights of Tangerine.  To create the variegated look I drew lines of the Tangerine on random petals, then I pulled pigment from the Sun Yellow and painted it over top to blend out the lines of already applied color.


Once the panel was completely dry I took a Micron 02 pen and outlined all of the images on the card.  This dark outline really made all the colors pop.


To complete the card I die cut the panel with the largest of the Stitched Rectangle dies from Simon Says Stamp, added a bit of Wink of Stella to the flowers and some dots of White Souffle Pen to the berries and flower centers, last, but not least I added the greeting.  This greeting is from the Simon Says Birthday Flowers set and was stamped with VersaFine Ink onto white cardstock.  I fussy cut it, leaving a thin white border and popped it up with some foam tape. 


I hope you enjoy how this card turned out.  I've linked to the supplies below.  Thanks for stopping by.
