Anyway, it's been a while since I used my Pure Color Pencils and saw some samples recently that made me pull them back out. Did you know that you can blend them together, just like watercolors? It's so cool. Use a blending stump (got mine from Michael's); one of the following: mineral oil, gamsol, or odorless paint thinner; an outline image stamp; Whisper White cardstock and Staz On ink. Simply stamp the image and let it dry. Then color around the inside of the outline with your Pure Color Pencils. Then dip your blending stump into your blending medium (I used Mona Lisa brand odorless paint thinner from Michael's) and use circular motions to pull the color toward the center of your image. You can blend colors together too, although my stamped image didn't really need that.
The stamp set is Pun Fun. I also used the Summer Picnic paper from the Occasions Mini catalog, Whisper White, Real Red, Pumpkin Pie and Bashful Blue cardstock.
