Derwent Inktense Pencils & Unity Stamps

Hello all! I know it's been a while…I hope you are all doing really well in this not-so-new-any-more year! I have been busy crafting and I wanted to share one of my newest crafty loves…Derwent Inktense pencils! They are water-soluble goodness! I actually have had these pencils for quite a while but I really hadn't tried to use them. So I pulled out one of my favorite Unity stamps…Jacqueline girl and stamped her on watercolor paper (140 lb cold press). (If you try this, make sure to use waterproof ink.) I then colored the image using the Inktense pencils.

Here's a quick video on how I did it:

This technique was so much fun…I think these pencils are a great alternative to Copic markers. (I love my Copics but they are a bit expensive and take practice.) I liked them so much I went out and got some more AND I ordered a small set of the Derwent Graphitint and Derwent Metallics (both water-soluble) to try! 

Here's how the card turned out:

I really like the watercolor feel the image has after using these pencils. I hope the video shows you how really simple this to do and you give this technique a try. 

Happy Crafting!
