Thanks for all you do.

This is a real quick post.
 I decided to do a bit of watercoloring with my Inktense Pencils. Lightly coloured with the three pencils then with a wet brush blended the colours together till I was happy. If I added extra colour I just took it from the tip of the pencil with the brush. I love the Inktense pencils but you need to remember when you start working the water in you need to finish what you are doing because when the colour dries it is SET, like cement. Its permanent which is brilliant if you want to do another colour on top as it doesn't reactivate.

Anyway decided to you my Thanks die from Simon Says cut out my pieces as I wanted to use the negative in this instance to show off the lovely colours of the watercolour panel. Put it all together and reapplied there were a couple of itty bitty pieces missing from the loops of the 't' and the 's' but after turning the place up side down I decided it didn't matter. A five minute card became a two hour search and rescue.

Placed a piece of glittery silver paper on the white card base then attached the watercolour panel with foam dimensional tape. Before I struck this panel on I added the 'for all you do' stamped sentiment.

Thank you for visiting and I hope you enjoyed.

This is gorgeous, and I love how the glitter just peeks out from behind that negative space. I adore my Inktense pencils, and love seeing how others use them. Also, thanks for reminding me that I have them, and need to pull them out soon.
