Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Good luck with the water colour painting Eileen. I have all the gear but never really mastered the art :-)
[in fact the same applies with lots I have :-) ]

Hi Ikki, the colouring is looking good, love those house stamps they're fab. Now come on you're a woman you can multi-task even turning a handle with fingers crossed ;-)

Afternoon Ikki, I would dearly like to try those inktense pencils but a little bit expensive at the moment. Looks like you are doing well love your gallery cards. I am going to look at your bug pages too. Little bit more time this week. Big hugs Jo.xxxx

Doone said...

how are the inktense pencils different to the Colour pigment blocks?

does it mean you can apply a more intense shade first then apply water to 'lighten'?

Gawd, I'd have to learn to reverse the approach to value ranges ....

happy painting....

Darcy said...

inktense pencils are beautiful, keep practising they are so worth it.

angeleef said...

I haven't quite managed to master watercolouring with my inktense pencils, a friend showed me how to blend them with white spirits last year and I find this result better for me :)

Sunshine Girl said...

I havent tried inktense pencils - are they good? I have 3 sets of watercolour pencils but dont seem to play with them now that I have my promarkers! Yours is looking good though from what I can see and what a nice drawer full of spellbinders you have there too!

Sid said...

Carola Bartz said...

I love watercolors, but need to learn a lot as well!

Morti said...

your watercolouring looks fine to me!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

Several of my friends have been talking about those new Inktense pens. I have yet to see them in the stores in the States. Sorry I'm late getting here, but I have contracted a computer virus. It's still not fixed, but I had to make sure I wasn't infecting anyone.

Julia Dunnit said...

Nice stamps Ikki - and like the others - the colouring looks lovely to me, don't be too hard on yourself! Would like a review of the pencils when you're feeling strong!!
