BubbleGum on Creative Tuesday

Bubble gum - hmmm...  watercolour, colourpencil and ink
 As I mentioned on Sunday I just finished the Supplies Me! course and in the course I was introduced to colour pencils and fell in LOVE!!! So I splurged and got a set of 132 Prismacolor Premier all the way from the States. They arrived this morning and I used them on the little doodle I did for this weeks Creative Tuesday  Bubblegum, and you know what these pencils are as good as they are reported, they are better than .... ;)
Here is a pic of the pencils  - yumm :)
Have a great day :)

You did a great job of making the bubble transparant! I bet the amazing pencil crayons helped. I'm so envious but happy for you. I am jonesing for a few sets of watercolor pencils and keep going to DickBlick.com to drool. They're sooo expensive though. Sigh, struggling artists...
Best,

Oh, Jehanne, I love this. What a great use of those pencils. Brilliant. I remember the first time someone from the US sent me some prismacolour pencils overseas to me there. I so loved them too. In fact, i still have some of them and I was about 16 when I got them. LOL.
