STARS Feature Friday: 13 Sale-a-Bration Inspiration
Nailed It: Trio of Cards

Swap Share Saturday: Having Fun with Watercolor Pencils!

Woohoo for Watercolor Pencils!  Stampin' Up!'s new Watercolor pencils are high-quality, smooth color pencils. Perfect for watercoloring stamped images.  

I've been asked how they differ from the retired Stampin' Up! pencils.  Here's my thoughts on that...

  1. They come in Stampin' Up! colors - yay!
  2. The seem to be a "softer pencil" - easier to color
  3. The blend real nicely!
