You're Berry Special

Hello everyone,

Today i'm sharing a card made for CASology: BoldRetro Sketches #101 and Make Your Mark.  I've been wanting to try out Inktense water color pencils for a while, but i restrained myself since i have Copics.  Finally, i gave in.  Boys... i am glad i did.  While Copics give amazing shading and blending capabilities, Inktense color pencils give really good shading too, not to mention, you can quickly color many images.  The berries on this card are colored with Inktense color pencils.  The berry image and sentiment are from the TAWS set Tooty Fruity

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!

Stamps: The Alley Way Stamps (Tooty Fruity)
Other: Inktense water color pencils
