I did this one late last night. I had been searching Prismacolors and I am very intrigued with the gamsol technique. I did not have gamsol but I did find a couple of prismas. I used the baby oil technique. I am glad I did because it gave me a feel for this and that I would enjoy it. The down side of the baby oil is that it is leaching out into the blue and black cardstock. But I figure for a first go it is okay. I will definitely be searching out some prismas and gamsol now. But to see if you like the technique I recommend trying it with pencil crayons and baby oil. If you have the stuff:)
I used mesh on the background.
BTW - The grubby finger holding the card is my son's. He took the pic for me.

I like this card and all your colors are so vibrant. I love using the Prismacolor pencils and I use odorless mineral sprits. It is cheaper and I can get it at Wal-Mart or any store that sells paint. I find I can blend my colors so much easier with this technique. Keep those pretty cards coming! TFS
