My first attempt at coloring with prismas after getting a lot of advice. Not sure I chose the right colors to blend, but I don't think it's too bad. I'm thinking I should have used the darker green around the edges of the leaves instead of the centers.
Updated with picture of the card I made with it.

You did wonderful! They are hard to learn and time consuming and I think the leaves are beautiful the way they are! A wise and wonderful instructor once told us to not worry so much about direction of the light. Just create it and you did!

I think you did very well, too! I usually shade the centers of leaves, as they're usually "deeper" than the edges, and more prone to being in shadow, as a general rule... I've found the Gamsol Magic technique to be very rewarding, forgiving, and fun - and you can use any mineral spirits (even baby oil), not just Gamsol. I use Swisspers cosmetic applicators rather than the paper blending stumps...

Beautifully done! Practice helps you decide what you like and don't like, what looks good and what doesn't. . . that is all a matter of what you like. . . that's the fun of stamping! Again, nicely done!
