MIM # 235 Adding color to Stamped Images

Laurie has a video up at the current Make It Monday,
she shows adding color to stamped images using pencils and gamsol or an ink blending solution.
Hi friends, I have added copics to highlight stamped images, but had not used prisma pencils and an ink blending solution.  So I gave it a try.
I stamped the flowers with Berry Sorbet and then went back and added a darker red in the center from the prisma colored pencils called rouge.  Then using a fantastic dipped in the ink blending solution I spread the color out, it really does help give dimension and added color to the images. I did the same with the little leaves.

  12. Oh Colleen, this is stunning! I guess I need to get some blending solution because I didn't like the harsh lines I got using the prisma pencils. I feel like I should remove my card from the list now that I've seen all the gorgeous card from the challenge this week. Yours in a winner!
