Yesterday I got 2 new goodies - a book about hand lettering from Amazon with some fun alpha ideas and a small set of Inktense pencils. Of course, I had to play last night and I just have to say that I absolutely LOVE these pencils. They are like watercolor pencils, only better because the color stays so intense after applying water. Using my water brush, they're easy to shade (see the T & X). I just got the 12 pack but that's still 12 times the fun!
