Prismacolor pencil tutorial - take 1

As I promised here is a quick photo tutorial on how I color with Prismacolor pencils. I titled this "take 1" because I am still out of town and not quite happy with the way the photos came out. That is what can happen when you use tools you aren't used to. Hopefully when I get home I can get some better pictures and perhaps give a video tutorial a shot. Don't hold your breath on that one cause I'm not to handy with my camera yet:) Here are the supplies you will need for today :

Card stock
Black ink
Prismacolor pencils
Blending stumps

Step 1:
Stamp your image using a waterproof ink (such as Versa Fine, Momento, or Staz On) (please don't mind the green leaf I must have fogotten to take a picture before I started coloring. I am going to show you how to color the Acorn part of this stamp)

Step 2:
With your lightest color, color at the outer edge of image

Step 3:
Dip the tip of your blending stump into the Gamsol

Step 4:
Using a small circular motion pull the color towards the center of the image

Step 5
Repeat steps 2 - 4 with your next shade or color until you achieve the look you want.

Thanks for stopping by! Again as soon as I get home and settled back in I promise a better tutorial! Don't forget to stop in tomorrow for our Fun-Filled Friday challenge announcement!

Happy Crafting,
