At For Fun this week.

This week at For Fun Challenges we are doing a challenge that is pretty simple. I love to color my images and stamps with color pencils and odorless mineral spirits. I have a friend who loves to color with markers. So I made this. I used The Angel Company stamp set and color pencils with oms. Now in my opinion I think that the crayola pencils are better and more blendable than prisma color pencils. THIS IS MY OPINION not yours so please no- "you're wrong..." I have a set of prismas and I use my sargent and crayola more. Well go over and see the beautiful cards my team made, try the challenge.

This looks stunning!!! I love it!!!

You did an awesome job here!

and yep totally agree with you, its absolutely whatever works for you with colouring! or anything of course ;)

I used to do the watercolour pencils with baby oil (I was told its the same as OMS).
But Now I've got onto these clear markers, so I can go over the rough pencil colouring with that instead of the oil etc. I find that works for me, simply cos I just can't justify the cost of copics!!! teehee!

I'm sure I can join this challenge!

Have a great day!

Hi Helen, The colours are so rich and the blending is perfect. People would have a heart attack if they seen how I colour in. I own 2 copics, my watercolour pencils and my Tombows and if I still can't get the colour I want I revert back to my acylic paints and paint it in. I use all 4 when colouring, whatever works. LOL.
