A bit of this... a bit of that...

Whilst toodling around the net this morning, I found a question that was asked about the difference between prisma's - copics - inkense pencils.. I have all of these, so thought I'd do a comparison.

I stamped my image using the Stampin Up Soft Summer set (which you can order from me if you would like it) and coloured in the three types of colours.

These are all the cards together -

So onto the first one, and this is the close up. This is the copic markers which I purchased from the Craft Den, Sheffield.
And here's the card
This second one was Derwent Inktense pencils (I bought mine from Staples, but other shops would sell them)
And here's the finished card with this colouring - the colours are really vibrant on the cardstock (I used SU Whisper White).
I don't know why the cardstock looks red on the photo - it's actually Rose Red from SU Rich Regals cardpack which I find more of a deep pink.

This last one was coloured with prisma's and sansador, again on Whisper White. My prisma's were bought from Ebay and came from the USA.
The technique of shading with with prisma pencils is slightly different than with the inktense. You really are better adding slightly different shades together, then blending.
Out of all of the cards, this one must be my favourite. I just love the colours, they are so soft and lovely. The cardstock is Elegant Eggplant from the Rich Regals SU cardstock. I added little pearl gems to finish.

That's it for now folks.. take care xx


  1. WOW , that's a great visual Jo and the cards are just lovely, I preffer the effect on the last one too. Hugs M xxx

  2. Hi Jo, i like them all, but I think my fav is the inktense one. When I see all 3 together its the one that stands out for me.

  3. Wow this is a hard call as they all look fab think if i have to pick it would be No2 Derwent inktense looks more vibrant than the others:)
