Gelatos and Inktense Pencils

Faber Castell Gelatos and Derwent Inktense pencils.

This week I have been having fun using some new art mediums as a means of expanding my creative skills.  I have never used watercolour pencils before and having watched many hours of amazing and very talented people using Gelatos I had to have a try.  So here is my first effort.

I covered some watercolour paper with the gelatos blended them with water using a wide brush and once dry I stamped on top with this really cute stamp using Versafine ink in black.

I then went about colouring in, what a joy.  Fantastic fun.  

I adhered it onto a slightly larger piece of cardstock which I had inked with Tim Holtz Distress Inks, in Broken China, Tumbled Glass and Faded Jeans.  I then adhered this onto my white card and distressed inked around the edge with more Tumbled Glass and my ink blending tool.
