Doodle that Escape class

I had a Summer Escape class for eight people at my house on Sunday night and this is what we made; a little box containing five small square cards.

We coloured the images in two ways, both using blender pens:

For our first three projects (the box, the Thanks So Much flower card and the For You scallop flower card) we used the blender pen to pick up ink from the inside lid of the ink pads.

For the last three projects (the two heart cards and the row of three flowers) we used the blender pen with Watercolour Wonder™ crayons. To colour the larger areas we scribbled with the crayon, then blended with the blender pen. For the finer detail, we used the blender pen directly on the crayon to pick up colour.

I hope a fun time was had by all!
