Stampin’ Up: Watercolor Pencils Review + Giveaway
Recently Stampin’s Up released their new Celebrations Catalog, and contained therein was a simple set of colored pencils. When I saw these, my first thought was that they would be a great addition to my colored pencil collection. As it turns out these are much more than colored pencils – they are Watercolor Pencils. These particular Watercolor Pencils go on like a regular colored pencil but have the ability to become watercolored.
The products featured in this post were provided to me free of charge courtesy of Stampin’ Up, but this in no way will influence the review to follow and all opinions are my own.
I received a set of the Watercolor Pencils Set by Stampin’ Up for review.
The colors included are Basic Black, Basic Gray, Bermuda Bay, Calypso Coral, Daffodil Delight, Early Espresso, Melon Mambo, Old Olive, Pacific Point, Pumpkin Pie, Real Red, Rich Razzleberry, Whisper White. What I really appreciated was that each pencil also has a coordinating stamp pad. l
These pencils are perfect for water coloring stamped images and the many stamps available. These can also be used with Aqua Painters, Blender Pens, or alone. I chose to use q-tips for the blending and spreading, and found that these worked very well. The color spreads very easily and the result looks just like water colors.
I absolutely loved this set, and I plan to use these to fill in my stamp sets, since the options are endless with color. This collection would be a welcome addition to any crafters collection.
