Happy Sweet Friday

Good Morning Everyone! Here is another attempt at the Gamsol technique I am trying to perfect. This one I used Baby Oil with my Prismacolor Pencils. I think I am getting the knack of it....using a very fine shading of the area I want to color and then a very dark line to shade. The whole process is taking a bit longer than I like for a single card. But, I guess if you are entering challenges or sending one to a special niece, it is worth it.

I am still working on trying to find a better way to take the photos of my cards and edit them. We are having scanning issues....the scanner I was using for such a long time is no longer compatible with my computer. Our other scanner, Wayne's, is foreign to me....he's not so great with knowing how to use it either (not that he can't figue it out....he's a computer genius!!!!). I am just not satisfied with the washed out look of my cards! He promised we would work on it this weekend.

Here are the details:
  • Stamps - SU So Very, Magnolia image (don't know name as this was from Linda)
  • Paper - SU Whisper White Textured CS, Provo Craft, Creative Imaginations and SU Bella DP
  • Ink - SU Chocolate Chip
  • Accessories - SU Chocolate Chip Marker, Prismacolor Pencils, Baby Oil, Stumps, Cotton Lace, SU Pretty in Pink Taffeta Ribbon, Bazzill Brads, Handmade Crocheted Flowers, SU Corner Rounders

Thanks for looking and leaving comments. I appreciate you very much!

Happy Crafting!!
