Ball Point Pen

Do you believe it? Well, over at Make it Crafty our challenge from Zoe was to color using Biros (ball point pens). Phew….what a task.

At first I thought ooh this will be interesting and fun ....

then I thought oh my this is a little more difficult than I thought and ....

then man, these will not blend like my Copics and ....

finally I just can't make it look like I want so go with what I can do

All in all it was a fun challenge and did push me in a direction I had not gone before. I think I will be trying this technique again at some point.

This is my finished card …. and believe me this is not the first try! I used Vamper and a variety of ball point pens I had.

There are some fabulous artists out there that just have a knack with stuff like this.

There are still a few days left to enter our challenge so come on over to the store gallery and join us.

Remember, it will never be perfect but it sure is fun!
