Stampin’ Up: Watercolor Pencils Review

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 Watercolor Pencil Set is a 13 pencil collection that contain high-quality, and smooth color pencils that are Acid free and Lignin free.

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.

    I’ve done good old fashioned water color painting when I was little! These pencils look really cool! I’ve wanted to expand how I color on greeting cards I make!

    I have done some water colors before, but it has been years since. I use to do paint by number oil paintings when I was a young girl.

  3. Catherine Lewis

    When I was in college I took an art course and did some water coloring then. I would love these pencils so I could use them in my Adult coloring books.

    I haven’t done any watercoloring yet but want to add it to my cardmaking supplies.

    I haven’t done watercoloring in many years. I do have some regular old colored pencils that I use in my coloring books. I’d like to try watercolor pencils in them. 🙂

    I took art classes all through high school and part of college, so I did a lot with water colors. I really want to win this for my daughter though. She’s becoming quite a good artist.

    I have not done any water-coloring since I was a child, and never with this type of pencil. However, I do have a nephew who does lovely work with them, and this would be a great gift for him.

  15. Christy Rivers

    I attempted watercoloring back in high school and once after that. I never quite figured out how to properly use water coloring pencils but I would love to master the skill.
