So very pretty! I just love bird designs--and these colors are among my all-time favorites to see together! *sigh*

Kim - the card is lovely. And I am so going to have to try using colored pencils and OMS on embossed images. I just got a Big Kick and have been playing with it. That's just a great idea. TFS.

Lovely soft card!<img border='0' src='/graphics/mbicons/smilies_v2/thumbup.gif'>

Lora,
<br>

<br>
This is basically the &quot;technique&quot; I used:
<br>

<br>

<br>
<a target='_blank' href='http://shari-design.blogspot.com/2008/07/my-coloring-video.html'>colored pencils/gamsol</a>
<br>

<br>
except instead of using gamsol, I used plain old baby oil (an idea I found on the Stamping board). And I didn't use Prismacolor pencils because I just bought them &amp; haven't sharpened them yet, and it just seemed like too much trouble.
<br>

<br>
I don't know what the difference is between gamsol &amp; baby oil. I've never used gamsol.
<br>

<br>
I started with the bird &amp; outlined it with the darkest blue I had &amp; then penciled in some lighter blue, then dipped the paper blending stump right into the bottle of baby oil, tapped off the excess, and started blending dark to light.
<br>

<br>
With the reeds, I picked out about 4 different shades of green and just started laying down the colors as they looked pleasing to me, blending with baby oil when I felt like it. The baby oil just blends the shades together &amp; kind of erases the pencil marks. I worked in a circular motion, for the most part (as the video teaches), and used different sizes of blending stumps. I just had fun with it. You cannot mess it up!
<br>

<br>
I'm in Ft. Lauderdale, getting ready to hunker down for T.S. (or Hurricane) Fay!

LOVE your card. I'm going to have to get this folder and the way you colored it is beautiful.
<br>

<br>
I've never used baby oil before (actually this is the first time I've even heard of it). Could you please give more details on how you blend w/ the oil.
<br>

<br>
Oh...I'm from S.Fla too...Jupiter. Where are you?

Anne, thanks. The stickles didn't show up too well in the photos, but I really stickled the heck out of it &amp; it's really glittery IRL. Those darn stickles, I start out intending to just put a little bit here &amp; a little bit there &amp; end up stickling everything in sight because they're so fun!
<br>

<br>
cardstamper, I didn't even break out the Prismacolor pencils for this - I used Crayola colored pencils &amp; blended with baby oil. Nothing fancy.
<br>

<br>
Thanks again, everyone.
