Coloring in stamped images

I learned a few months ago how to do the Magic Color Pencil Technique (or the Gamsol Technique). It is a technique that you use when you color in stamped images with colored pencils and an odorless mineral spirits. I made these few cards.....more of a masculine feel to them. The stamp set, cardstock, metal embellishments, hemp twine, and twill ribbons are from Stampin Up. I distressed with the dark brown fluid chalk cat's eye ink pad. I use StazOn ink so that the image doesn't smear when I apply the Mona Lisa brand of odorless mineral spirits. The colored pencils that I use are the Prismacolor Premier. You can see a tutorial for the Magic Color Pencil Technique HERE.
