from Kuretake. Zig alcohol based dyestuff ink....
I thought I would put these pens to the test this week and see what they were like to work with.

They coloured wood really well (the leaves on this card) and gave a very good cover - they dried really quickly too so I was able to finished my project without having to wait for hours for things to dry (always a bonus in my book!).

I loved the cover on the paper flower (this flower was already patterned and I wanted to see if I could get the ink cover that I wanted on top of this design - and I could!).
I also used them to edge the paper, this worked well too.....

Only downside - now I need to get more of these pens as only have a few!!!


  1. I love the richness of the colours and will have to check out these pens myself now!

  2. Beautiful card, lovely colours and that flower is gorgeous xx

  3. Really beautiful, looks like I might have to invest in some of these pens.

  4. A very pretty card, thanks for the pen review...I always use promarkers but it is good to know what is out there and perhaps I will try something new.

  5. Lovely card and colours, fabulous layout.
