Hi, I made a card ths morning, and thought I'd try out the Adirondack pens I got from Particraft.
They are great! I stamped an image using black archival ink, let it dry and then coloured it with the pens. You can use them as felt pens, or draw a bit onto a plastic surface, and pick up the ink with a wet paintbrush. New colours can be made by mixing them on the plastic. Lighter or darker shades are achieved by adding more or less water, or painting several coats. I mixed red and green to get the brown for the hair, and all the blue was done using the denim coloured pen, with added water. I managed to get a pale pink for the skin , by using very watery red. I also added a few glittery star shapes by drawing them with Dries Clear glue, and adding Cosmic shimmer glitter. Here's the result:
My kids are off school/nursery for the first May bank holiday tomorrow till Wednesday, so no more crafting till then...
