When I got my tin of 120 prisma colored pencils I was very excited. I couldn't believe all the shades of gray there were! Then came the time when I had to sharpen all of the colored pencils and I was not so excited! So the tin sat for a while with half of the pencils sharpened. I used the colored pencils and I liked them, but I disliked how my images looked like (in my opinion) a 2nd grader colored them in. You could always see the pencil lines in my image. Then I learned about gamsol magic and saw some BEAUTIFUL coloring on other people's cards so I bought the gamsol and stumps to try it out. I have had the supplies for over 6 months and I have used them, but I didn't LOVE the technique. This weekend I decided to dust off my gamsol and give the technique another try. So I made a couple of cards. This image gave me a LOT of practice!!! The stamp of the girlsis from Inky Antics (I think) , I also used SU Fresh Fillers, Little Pieces, and Just Jeans. You can't really see it, but I also used a glaze pen to highlight different parts.
