WOYWW 140 – New materials …

Tja, het is weer woensdag... tijd voor een nieuwe WOYWW. Ik ben weer heel blij terug te zijn in 'blogland' na een periode dat alles anders lijkt te moeten gaan dan je zou hebben verwacht... met als resultaat dat er weinig tot geen tijd overbleef om te stempelen. Maar dat is nu verleden tijd en vandaag wil ik jullie mijn bureaublad laten zien met wat nieuwe materialen.

Well, it’s Wednesday again… time for a new WOYWW. I’m so glad to be back with you again after a period of 'everything not quite going the way I had expected'... which resulted in no crafting time at all. But that’s the past and today I want to show you my work desk with some new stuff.

Kijk je wat beter op mijn bureaublad, dan ontdek je vast mijn nieuwe potloden... Derwent Inktense Pencils. Deze geweldige doos met 12 potloden was een kerstcadeautje waarmee ik erg in mijn nopjes ben. Ik had al verschillende pogingen gewaagd om stempelafdrukken in te kleuren met Distress Inkt, maar ik was eigenlijk nooit echt helemaal tevreden met het resultaat. Nadat ik zo'n twee weken had gewerkt met deze Inktense potloden had ik al het gevoel ze wat meer onder controle te hebben. Hier zien jullie een LOTV afdruk die ik aan het inkleuren ben met deze potloden.

If you take a closer look you discover some new pencils… Derwent Inktense Pencils. This lovely box with 12 Pencils was a Christmas present from my hubby and I’m really pleased with it. I’ve tried to colour all sorts of stamps with Distress Ink, but the results weren’t what I expected. After working, for about two weeks, with these ones I feel I’ve got them a little more under control. Here you see a LOTV stamp I've coloured with them.

En hoor ik jullie denken, maar 12 kleuren? Het goede nieuws is dat je altijd een groter aantal kleuren kunt kopen (natuurlijk), maar je kunt de kleuren ook zelf ook mengen zodat er nieuwe kleuren ontstaan (een veel goedkopere optie). En voor die moeilijke huidskleur? Hiervoor heb ik twee kleuren gemengd waardoor ik precies de kleur kreeg die ik zocht.
Een ander groot voordeel is dat, wanneer de eerste aangebrachte kleurlaag volledig is opgedroogd, je er een tweede laag gewoon overheen kunt zetten. Deze laag zal je eerste laag niet veranderen of in het ergste geval verknoeien.

And maybe I hear you thinking, just 12 colours? But the good news about these pencils is, you can buy bigger boxes (of course) or mix the colours by yourself. This works out much cheaper, especially when you need the right colour for shading skin. I’ve mixed two colours and achieved the right tone. Another great thing is that when your first layer has dried you can put a second layer over the first one without changing it. That means that when you are happy with you first layer you can’t spoil it with your second layer.

Natuurlijk heb ik nog niet veel voorbeelden met deze inkleurtechniek, maar wanneer je deze link volgt naar mijn voorgaande blog post, kun je zien hoe deze potloden zijn gebruikt in mijn Buzzzy Bee kaart.
En wil je nog meer verschillende bureaubladen bekijken, volg dan deze WOYWW link en geniet van al het moois dat iedereen te vertellen heeft.

Have a happy and crafty Wednesday

Of course I don't have many different examples quite yet, but if you follow this link to my previous blog post you can see how I used these pencils on my Buzzzy Bee card.

Have a happy and crafty Wednesday.

When I was looking for something else some time ago I found utube tutorials on using those pencils. You seem to have grasped the technique anyway and done a great job.
Shame this appointment is not for my back ...they think I have a heart problem.

Peggy zei

I'm going to have to check out those pencils have a great WOYWW

Thanks for the blog visit today and your kind words...I did not use my cricut for the burlap...it really makes a lot of "sheddy" fibres when you cut the burlap. I used my Tim Holtz die cut and my Big Shot. I had to use a lint roller on the die cut when I was done.
I then went to my local scrapbook store and they had an even bigger petal. They kindly let me cut several and I lint rollered their die cut as well. I even offered to sweep up the floor but they declined! teehee

Hi there. Oh, don't you just love coloring? You are right, 12 pencils are enough. I get several different "shades" from the same pencil depending on how hard I press. I also use blender pens and love them. It adds a watercolor look.

I signed up as a follower - hope you don't mind!!


Franka Benjaminsen zei

Hmmm, doesn't sound very well... a problem with your heart. Hope they get it under controll very soon and hope you feel a little bit better too. Take care. xFranka

Nice to see someone colouring with pencils for a change, I love them. My friend has a massive box, how I envy her, but in a nice way. You just keep enjoying your lovely gift from your husband.

Thanks so much for sharing - Hugs, Neet 195 (very late this week)xx

Hi Franka, nice to see you on WOYWW again. Such a lovely gift from your hubby and your experiments in using the pencils are looking very good. Love your 'buzzy bee' card ... I'm very fond of bees. Thanks for popping in and leaving a comment - it's much appreciated. Hope you have a lovely weekend. Elizabeth x #2
