Use Your Colored Pencils!

This week over at the Use Your Stash blog, Kimmie and Corey have challenged us to use our colored pencils. It had been a while since I pulled mine out so I was a little excited about this one.
Here's what I came up with. I used my Prisma pencils with a little baby oil to color in my image. I also used chalk for the sky and grass - I think I might have went a little overboard with the chalk. LOL. Anywhooo. If you would like to join us in this weeks challenge, all you have to do is get out those pencils and CREATE! When you're all done, you can link your creations up HERE.

Deets: Cardstock: Stampin' Up. Pattern Paper: Basic Grey's Offbeat collection. Stamp: Craft Lounge's Pat the Dog. Buttons: Autumn Leaves. Other supplies used: Spellbinder's Labels 2 dies and Stampin' Up chalk.

Jane, here is a link to a Gamsol Magic tutorial over at Splitcoast Stampers. Some stampers substitue gamsol for baby oil or goo gone.

This is so great. I can't draw at all but I just bought some colored pencils. I'm going to follow for a bit and see if I can even "hang" with you all.!!
