Default Using Colored pencils (w/o Gamsol)

Does NE1 use colored pencils to color in their images? I am not talking about using them with the Gamsol. I mean just on their own. Do you like using them? Any tips you can share.

Try the gallery of Deeth1
http:////www.splitcoaststampers.com/...00&ppuser=4482

She uses colored pencils and uses white erasers to help blend as well as some other type of things because she is allergic to Gamsol type solvents. I think you will enjoy her gallery anyway!

I LOVE using my prismas without any type of blending tool - it creates such depth to the color. If you go to www.lockhartstampcompany.com Karen has a fantastic "tutorial" on coloring tulips (and using an embossing stylus). I will be adding more samples to my blog over the next few days (I hope) as well - just using prismas and no blending tools.

A couple of tips I have are to start light - really light! Then go back over it again, and again to add layers of color. I choose at least 3 different colors from the same color family as well as one that sort of "pops". Again I hope to show more detail on my blog in the very near future .

I use my pencils & blend them with just a regular old dry Q-tip. Making heavy lines & blending. Works great.

I use watercolor pencils and my blender pen. I love that effect.
