WOYFW Plus a Lucky WINNER!!!

Well it's Wed and I treated myself to some pencils I've been wanting to get for a really long time and finally broke down and bought some Inktense & some Soft Pastels. So tonight it looks like I'll be colouring in some images and see how they turn out I've never tried Inktense and can't wait to see how they go once they get a brush over them. Seeing they are suppose to be like watercolour pencils which I love to paint with every once in a while.
So here's a couple images I've coloured in
Flower is with the inktense they remind me alot of watercolour pencils crayons
but more intense
The Soft Pastels very soft indeed just like a chalk pastel ... they smudge just as easy
must remember to not rub my hand across it, like I did but very dreamy like can see alot of clouds made with these

And the lucky Winner of my candy is....
With the doing of a little math and adding all the comments/followers/those who posted
then giving in all the numbers to Mr. Random Generator and it is....
Please send me your home address and I'll get it off into the post to you ASAP !!!
CONGRATS and sorry if you didn't win this time around
there will be more sooner or later.

Have a Happy Wed and Check out everyone else's desk
at Julia's and take a snoop thru everyone's stash & spaces
it's so addictive to do lol
hugs Nikki

  18. Nikki: I have been seeing those Inktense pencils on Jennifer McGuire's blog often. I am now putting them on my list. I have a large box of Prisma colored pencils, so that is why I haven't jumped on it, but they do give you such a nice look more vibrant! The pastel pencils are something Ih ave not seen before, they look great of soft looks! Thanks for the kind visit! Enjoy the week! Winnie #75
