Artist Trading Card Daily 99 - Rowan Fairy Coloured With Inktense Pencils 2

Artist Trading Card Daily – 99

Hello again and welcome to the last in my mini cardstock challenge, and the 99th Artist Trading Card!

Phew, didn’t think that I would make it this far but I’m glad that I have.

Anyway, for today’s creation I chose to use the Inktense water soluble pencils as the medium of choice to try out on the Paper Milk cardstock.

I think that you will agree that they do live up to their reputation for intense colour …

Once again the “tooth” of the Paper Milk cardstock and it’s ability to take this limited watercolour style colouring method helped me create some particularly strong colours from the Inktense pencils – I was particularly impressed with what I was able to achieve in terms of the translucency of the wing and shading in the hair.

Fab eh? Here’s a closer look …

Anyway, I’m sure that you’ve seen my previous post using this image, but if not, you can find it via this link.

If anyone is interested in trying this Paper Milk cardstock for themselves you can find it over at

Sadly due to the new VAT laws (in the UK) the digital stamp that I used is no longer available online but I believe that you might still be able to find it as a physical stamp somewhere – it’s called the Rowan Fairy.

  2. Hi John

    A wonderfully sweet image and again, some glorious colouring. I’m glad you’ve used the Inktense pencils as I have been considering adding some to my arsenal (no joke… there are many!) of colouring pencils, I have brought from paper cutz in the past and that paper milk cardstock has stood up well to your colouring so I will be adding some to my next order. Thanks for sharing your work with us as it is rare to find reviews for card/ mediums from a craft standpoint.

  3. Hi John, your colouring is wonderful and you have inspired me to get my Inktense pencils out that I’ve only ever used for parchment crafting. Thank you so very much, I seem to die cut all my cards at the moment & you have brought me back to relaxing colouring. Your last two ATC’s are a very refreshing change from die cutting. Please keep colouring you really are inspirational
