Default tan/brown stamped image then colored to look hand drawn?

HELP! I just splurged at the Michael's 50% off all xmas stamps sale last night and got many swirly images that woudl be *perfect* for the hand drawn looking techniques I've seen, but I don't know how to do it.
From what I can tell, an image is stamped in brown or light tan ink and then colored in with great dimension to achieve a sketched appearance. I thought it was light ink and copics, but it teh copics were over powering. I thought maybe light ink and prismas with gamsol but it too was nuddled. Anyone have any ideas on how thsi is done?
I can't find a thing on it...

Hmm - sketched? I have just started trying the no-line coloring thing - maybe that's what you mean. Here's an example: Elebration! by Understandblue - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Also, Dina Kowal does these beautiful soft images with that same technique but a brown/light ink. Cup 'o Roses by dini - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

Lydia's video is brilliant! I have done that technique with markers and watercolors, or a combination of the two. Colored pencils work really well too. Here's a digi I colored this way, printed in a light grey:

Here are a few more examples:

using Touch Markers:

Raspberries by dini - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers

markers and watercolor:

Thinking of you - roses by dini - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers
CTSEPT - Beach Getaway by dini - Cards and Paper Crafts at Splitcoaststampers (this link won't work for you if you're not a Fan Club member. though)

I have a tutorial available on my blog here for the marker/watercolor technique:
Mama Dini's Stamperia: Borderless Watercoloring with Rubber Stamps - Tutorial Available!
(The theory of the tutorial could be easily applied with pencils/OMS blending instead of the watercolors...)

Hope that helps!

Default I posted most of this before, but it applies here

If you're going for realism, there are very few "hard" lines. Everything that has an edge, one side or the other should have shading, so that the edge fades into the color.

If something is behind or under something, the shading falls on it. You can imagine where the light source is if you want to.

A light object on a dark ground, the ground would be darkest right against the outside of the image and fade out farther away.

A dark image on a light ground, the image would be darkest right against the inside of the outline, then fade towards the inside.

These rules will also help things appear 3-dimensional.

If you are not dealing with a medium that lets you create darker areas by more concentrated application, try adding a little of the complimentary color or choosing that type of color for shadows.

Compliments:
Red--Green
Yellow--purple
Blue--orange

So, if you have a yellow object, and you can't blend a little purple with your color, look for a tannish or ocher color for the shadow.

I would stamp the image in whatever color you're going to predominantly color it in. For instance, if I'm going to do a pink pickup truck, I would use pink, red, or magenta. I usually use colored pencils for realism. You can try markers. Dried up markers re-moistened with a damp paper towel will allow you to do subtler colors with regular markers (Crayola Supertips). You can also try watercolor paint or pencils. Paint the color in lightly, then go back with a drier brush (less water & more paint) to paint shadows.
