« *GASP* I'm Hyperventilating!! | Main | More Pure Color »

What paper did you use - SU? I tried on some regular white paper and it really pilled up on me. I figure I'll order some watercolor paper to try it on....but if SU regular cardstock will work then that rocks!!

Jan Scholl

this is great but to anyone sensitive to scents like me--mineral oil still stinks. as does OMS and Gamsol. I have the most sensative nose in the world. the first words out of my mouth is usually--man, what stinks?
so use lots of ventilations. a small portable fan blowing away from you crosswise is good.


Julie, this is a wonderful tutorial. I have all of the Prisma's but it is good to know that SU color pencils produce such a beautiful color also. TFS


Thanks for the tip about the eraser! Very cool. I just starting coloring with Prisma pencils and mineral spirits and am lovin' it!! :0)


The card looks great. I am not fond of the way I color and I always look for something new. I love to color in pencil and I have Prismacolor pencils. Well I tried the pencils with the mineral oil and it didn't seem to work. I just ended up with an oily mess. UGH!


Your card is absolutely beautiful! Love the oval topped with the circle and the brad!


beautiful card, fantastic colours


Another great tutorial using SU products! Thank you!

Great tutorial. I usually use one end of each stump for each colour family and never thought to sand the end - duh!! I picked up a few other tips as well - thanks heaps.

Michelle R

WOW! Great tutorial, and your coloring is fabulous!

Elaine Wilson

Wonderful tutorials! You are one talented lady! One thing I didn't understand is where you mentioned sponging off a scallop circle you had punched. Are you taking a wet sponge to get color from the card stock?


Wow, you've done a great job of translating these watercoloring techniques into SU product techniques! TFS!

Laurie Hines

That looks great and seems really easy! This should help those like me who are challenged in the watercoloring area! One question, where do you find the mineral oil? I have been looking for it because I need to refill my blender pens and could not find it at walmart or walgreens. Help!?!

Dawn Easton

Oh wow! Your card is so CUTE!! Awesome job colouring that in!!

dawnmercedes have great tutorials! thanks for walking us through your "discoveries!"

Regina Cornelius

wowzers!!!! your coloring tutorials have been amazing! you truly have a talent!
i do have a silly question though? would the watercolor pencils do the same thing...what about the metallic pencils? hmmmm....

Erin in OKC

How cool!! I love my prismacolors, but find I use them less than I'd like because the gamsol made me dizzy one time. Who knew mineral oil did the same thing? Thanks so much for sharing this!

Kelly S

It looks're coloring skills are far superior to mine, but I'm off to try somethingof the sort!!

Thanks for the awesome tutorial!!

Seriously, your coloring tut's are awesome. Thank you!


Beautiful! Thanks so much for sharing this!


Very cool! I like the idea of the mineral oil rather than gamsol... I don't do well with even "odorless" mineral spirits.
