Penguin Pals

I'd like to say this was a quickie, but it took ages as it was my first proper attempt with the Inktense watercolouring, and I'm struggling with them a bit!

I purposely chose colours that I liked to motivate me, and matched them with the gorgeous Snow Princess papers too, but I'm still not overly happy with the result.

I'm a bit lost as to what else to say about this one, so I'll keep my waffle short for a change.

More practice needed, methinks.

Sarah's right, grand job done with a difficult medium hun. I love that the colours are bright but soft at the same time. And who can resist a penguin?! Hugs xx

Looks good to me I do think they give a softer look than the alcohol pens. My first attempt went in the bin its was the skin just so bad but I've done two images now one on my blog just this week and the other still to be posted. I also found Becky Hetherington's tutorials very helpful. This is a brilliant start love the card Love and Happy Crafting Hugs Carole x
