Snow Much Fun


You know how much I like to color, right? And my favorite coloring toys are my Copics! Well.... during a discussion in the Stamp Addicts blog group, I learned about a new-to-me way to color - Drewent Inktense Pencils. I decided to give them a try. The decision for me really came down to the transporatibility of these pencils. I travel a lot and figured they'd be so much easier to take with me on a trip than my big container of Copics.

My new Inktense pencils arrived just days before we left on vacation... great timing. I took them (along with the needed Aqua Pen) and some cute little snowman images with me and colored these in the hotel in Branson. My first attempt with the Inktense pencils was fun, though you will be able to see I need some practice.

Oh, he turned out good! I love the colors. I too like Copics, but really use my pencils mostly. I have more of them to choose from color wise.

Great card, thanks for sharing!
