Delight in the Little Things - SugarPea Guest Designer #9

It's been a while since I had my Inktense pencils out. I bought three to try them out when I first started crafting and I then had to have the full set. They may be the colouring medium that lasts the longest as you really don't need a lot to colour with and I haven't sharpened any yet.

On some Winsor & Newton watercolour card, I stamped the BoHo Feathers in VersaFine inks - Smokey Grey and Onyx Black. The ones in black were the ones I wanted to colour so they would pop more.

I took two blue-greens and two yellows and with hardly any water, I happily coloured in my feathers. I have a video showing Inktense colouring from a couple of years ago to show how I do it. It is very simple blending.

I love the brightness of the colours and that they are permanent so don't reactivate if you get them wet again with another layer of colour.

I then heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of black cardstock and then adhered it to the front with my tape runner. I cut the panel down to size and then adhered it to an aquamarine card base.

Thank you so much for popping by. I love these feathers!

Happy Crafting :)

This is such a beautiful card Ruth - the colours are so gorgeous and the design is fabulous. Love how you have highlighted just two of the feathers and muted the rest. And that bold black strip is just perfect. Really fab card! I must get my inktense out! haha!! I make a mention on every comment I leave here of what I must do, and never actually do!
