New kids on the block -Aquatint pens coming from Crafters Companion

Hi all. Just popping by to let you know that Crafters Companion will be releasing their new Aquatint pens on Wednesday at 6pm, on Hochanda.

If you already have any of the Sparkle pens, these are exactly like that, but without the sparkle. You can do all the same techniques and there are a lovely range of colours which match the original sparkle colours.

I have had a really good play with these, and here is one of my first makes using the pens teamed with one of the lovely Sheena A Little Bit Sketchy stamps which will also feature on the show.

For this card I have embossed the dandelion and leaves in black embossing powers and painted with my pens. For the light yellow I have applied directly to the card with the pen, and for the other colours I have applied to a non porous surface and picked up the paint from there with a damp brush, so that I can blend and shade.

For the backing paper I applied the ink directly to the leave stamp and then stamped it randomly ot create a pattern.

I hope you like this first card. Please visit Sheena's Inkoids over on Facebook to see tonnes more brilliant sneak peaks from my very talented teamies!

Thanks for visiting.
