Simple Greetings


I wish I had enough guts to show you what I did with this class the first time. I was done about 2 weeks ago which would have been better for my blog as I would have had something to post! With two cards finished ... I went to bed. After getting up, I took my coffee and went to survey the work I did and thought I had completed, only to find that I wasn't as enamored of them as the night before! Back to the drawing board!



Of all the new techniques I have embraced this last year - Colored pencils is by far my most favorite
(bad english :) Which is strange, since I have been using them for over 10 years...just not with gamsol.
But what if you are using a stamp that is solid and doesn't have any outlines to color in? In the past I just would have stamped in a soft colorbox ink and shaded with other colored pencils. Would gamsol work I wondered?
It did work actually. I stamped the flowers using "Wheat Versamagic Chalk Ink" . You can just see the outline of the ink on the hot pink flowers. I add the pencil only in the bell of the flower and then pulled it up towards the middle with gamsol. With the soft pink color I didn't bother to add any gamsol as it was an effort just to get enough color to show.
