My coloring style

I have had a few emails questioning exactly what someone does with a Digi-Stamp and how my coloring style varies from others. I work almost exclusively with Prismacolor pencils and use Tombow markers for the base colors on cardstock. I have seen and read about prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits??? might need to try this some day. Below are 2 of my Digi-stamps in my etsy shop, I printed them and colored them in my style. Maybe I will try something new for comparison...

Great Images!!! You should give the oderless mineral spirits/blending stubs a try - you would prob love the effect it gives! I also hear some use baby oil in place of the OMS. You can do a search on Youtube and check out the technique. Curious to see how you do LOL!!!

Dustin, this beary fairy is so adorable. I think your coloring is fabulous as is! I haven't tried your choice of medium yet but from the looks of it, it rivals some of the markers that are hot right now. OMS and pencils are pretty neat, I have yet to perfect it though. :( And I believe the stumps from Taiwan aren't as good as the stumps from China? Something like that...can't wait to see what else you come up with!

How interesting. I colored theFairy Bear last night and also ended up with brown bear, blue wings and red toadstool with white spots!!! Not as nicely colored and shaded by any means, but I love seeing what you "see" with the images.
