Visible Image meets Inktense

Hello there,

I'd just like to say many thanks to my loyal band of followers for the lovely comments that you've left recently, they're really appreciated, and so are you! :)

I really been impressed with the artwork that I've seen around using  Derwent Inktense pencils and I was thrilled when my lovely Hubby treated me to a set a couple of weeks back.  I was instantly impressed when I saw the depth of colour that you can achieve with them in comparison with the normal water colour pencils. I also love how they just blend so effortlessly.  I've coloured in a few images which I'll share will you at a later date but I thought I'd try something a little different for me which was definitely out of my comfort zone and here's the result:


I've used this fabulous stamp set by Visible image on several occasions but I thought I'd try to be a little more artistic with this one.  Although there's lots that I need to try and improve on, I'm reasonably pleased with this as a first attempt. 

I started by stamping the cat's face using Versafine ink.  Once this was completely dry, I then used my new pencils to add the colour before using a water colour brush to blend it all.

I'm adding this card to the following challenges:

Penny Black and More - All Creatures Great and Small

Wow, this is stunning Sandra, it reminds me of my poor old rescue cat Ginge (sadly no longer with us) the colours are spot on. Great work with the pencils.

This cat has a sweet face and you have got lots of great detail into it with the mix of colours Sandra, and I love the border with the cat silhouettes and the fun paw prints. Like you I have been wishing to get some Inktense Pencils but there are always other things I need and they slip down the list, but hopefully I will get them eventually. x

This is just super Sandra, the cat is an adorable image and you have really brought him (I've decided it's a him as he's ginger!) to life with your wonderful colouring. Have a set of those but confess I've never got on too well with them but clearly you have.
