Hi everyone! My boss is more like a mom to me & buys me presents sometimes, so recently she bought me a set of inktense pencils. Neither of us had ever used them before, but one of her student assistants uses them frequently and highly recommended them. For anyone who hasn't used them before either, you can use them like you would watercolor pencils- they're made from watersoluble ink & are really vibrant. You can either leave them as they are or use water with them to drag the colors around & paint with them. Last night I decided to try them out & I really like them! I made a few more of those fish cards using those pencils & water.



& some close-ups

"Wear Moor Black"


"Something Fancy"


"Icy Hot"


"Calico Cat Bait"


Thanks for looking!

Very cool! I'm impressed. I thought they were cut out of magazines and pasted on cards or something. Woah!

Really gorgeous.  I especially like the dark one, his eye is very lifelike.

I thought the same thing from the thumbnail pic.

Perfect theme for the summer and very creative idea. I love it. You have talent!

Thanks! Okay don't quote me on this, but I THINK most bristol is intended for dry mediums only unless it specifies otherwise on the package. If I were you, I'd try using something like watercolor paper or something else along those lines that's meant to get wet by nature of what you'd be using with it.

ps. Thanks everyone! I'm glad you're enjoying my cards!
