WOYWW and Wink Of Stella

It's Wednesday again and that means it's time for WOYWW.  Last week I showed my new Christmas stash and there were questions about the Wink Of Stella pens.  They are a sort of cross between a felt tip and a gel pen which gives colour with a sheen of sparkly star dust.  It's easy to see when you tilt the card but not so easy to photograph, it's subtle stuff, not in your face bling.  I just about managed it on the leaf below.

As well as the coloured pens there's a clear one that just delivers the sparkle over what ever was already there.  I've used it on my combined entry for Moving Along With The Times 'Thank you!' challenge and Allsorts 'Clean and Simple' challenge #188.

I've coloured using Copics with some pencil shading and instead of having white highlights on the boots I've used the clear pen.

As for the desk, look away now unless you are of a stern constitution, it's not a pretty site.
 I'll get to it, eventually.

Really cool pens! Love your cute card too and like how the pen looks on the boots! I am made of pretty stern stuff so I did look at the desk top. Not too bad. Looks like you can still see most things! Have a great day!

Great desk - looks very busy! It makes me smile sometimes to see all the bits n bobs we have in common. I even have a picture of Mr Holtz on the side as well LOL.

If I had pens like that to play with, I would also not clean, perfectly understandable.
I always try to sort, but then I find these cool things, and... Well, you know?!
Happy belated WOYWW!

Those pens sound great and will have to look out for them.
Erm, exactly how do you create lovely stuff on that desk? Most crafters have a 6" space but I cannot see even a 2" space there!
