Make a card in less than 10! (another Inktense demo!)

Howdy folks! Want a quick and colorful card idea?

DCF 1.0

You can paint this card and envelope in under 10 minutes. I used Inktense watercolor pencils but you can use any watercolor pencils or crayons you have or even kids watercolor paint! Watch the video to see how:

BTW the large-and-in-charge butterfly stamp is made by Tattered Angles and the smaller butterfly used on the envelope is by Stampin Up. Thanks for stopping by and til next time happy crafting!

  1. Loved the use of the butterflies and I am in love those inktense pencils, which I bought the other day and tried out. I got that brand in the set o12. Thanks for turning me on to them!


  2. Wow…you make it look so easy. I may have to try it:)

    Thank you!


  3. Hi Lindsay, I pretty much always use watercolor pencils. I’m not big on the marker like copic etc because they are so darn expensive. I don’t use water color paper or water for that matter. Instead I use mineral spirits and regular card stock. It works really well and you can highlight etc. like a marker. I think it gives it a bit softer look than markers. Any way just my thoughts and opinion 🙂 Hugs, thanks for the video

  5. I bought Prima pencils but hate using the smelly stuff to move the color around. I am now thinking about getting Inktense watercolor pencils. Water has not fumes! Thanks for showing us how easily they work.


  6. AWESOME video Lindsay, once again!! Thanks for linking my blog to your post yesterday! Have a great day!


  7. Beautiful as usual, Lindsay! I love how the colours come to life with water – it’s like watching magic painting! I adore my Inktense pencils.



  8. Thank you for your visit and lovely comment on my blog, Lindsay! I am missing WOYWW too… and being creative! Hope it won’t be too long now. I’ve done a few more zentangles recently and need to get them photographed and uploaded.

    Glad you like my Zentangle art. The Inktense pencils are wonderful for colouring that! I’m so glad you are enjoying them – you are certainly producing some lovely results. With such great materials available I don’t think I shall ever start on Copics or other expensive markers. You have much more control with the pencils and the capability for blending is so easy and intuitive.



  9. What a beautiful butterfly stamp! Thanks for sharing!
