Gamsol Magic

Anyone out there love magic...? Well, I do and the Gamsol Magic technique is just great and I love it! I happened to stumble onto this technique when doing a search on what more I could do with my colored pencils. Using premium colored pencils and Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits you can achieve wonderful colors and shading. I have almost abandoned my Copics (never never) for this technique. If you are looking for a cheaper way of achieving the same coloration you would get using Copics this might be the avenue for you! Here are some of the recent Gamsol technique cards I have done. ENJOY! (Stamps are from Stamping Bella - Lulu collection)
