I have a giveaway today so leave a comment here on my blog and I will choose a winner and send the name over to Kathy so she can announce it on her blog on September 12th! 
My giveaway is a FULL set of Prismacolor Pencils! It's one of my favorite ways to color! 




I made this card using the new Fabulous Rose Frame stamp set and the new Stitched Leaves Mini Kit, all available in the What's New Category at Gina K. Designs HERE.




I colored the flowers with Prismacolor Pencils and used a little Gamsol to blend. 
To see how I use Gamsol, you can watch this video on my YouTube Channel HERE or right here on my blog: 

And here is another one on YOUTUBE, or here:



Kathy from The Daily Marker is the creator of  “The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge”.The Challenge is a great way to gain confidence with your coloring and join in a community of positivity and coloring enthusiasts.

  29. Beautiful coloring Gina and great video! I had no idea there was a pencil extender!!! Just what I need! My Prismas are older now and getting small but my Daddy originally game me a set when I was about 6 in a stadium seating kind of Red box...I can still recall the smell when I opened them! And since then I have been in LOVE with Prismas :D so when my little girl was about 5 I bought this set and now she LOVES them too! I think she is old enough now that I could show her how to use Gamesol. That set is my DREAM set!!
    TFS, inspired to get my girl playing with Gamesol!

  162. Oh my goodness....those flowers are beautiful. I have to try Gamsol and pencils.

    ReplyDelete
  163. Love this....glad to get in on the beginning...thank you for posting.

    ReplyDelete
  164. Gorgeous cards, Gina. I am so happy to see you stick your blending stump into the Gamsol. So many videos that I've seen use some kind of cotton or other conductor to barely get the stump damp. I'm just not that delicate, nor do I have the time or patience to reload the gamsol every few strokes! I'm so glad to see that it is no big deal if you just wet the stump pretty well. And thanks for offering up a whole set of Prismas! What a generous gift!

    ReplyDelete
  165. Wow! I love the colors you used & will have to try gamsol with my colored pencils! Thanks for sharing your beautiful card & for the chance to win!!

  167. Wow! What a wonderful gift! I use Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils to color with, but I still haven't tried blending them with Gamsol. Your cards are gorgeous, so I may have to give it a whirl during this month's coloring challenge!
