I’ve been practicing with my Prismacolors………….

and Goo Gone. I have the OMS but I think it’s probably safer with the Goo Gone and it works just fine. I also used a paint brush with some alcohol and the ink from one of my Sharpies to add a little shadowing type background color. The image I used was not a stamp….I guess you could say that I made a digital stamp using the“Red Rose” Plate 28 in my “The Language of Flowers" Coloring Book by Dover. I just printed it using my Canon Pixma MP530 All-in-One inkjet printer and then heat set it with my heat gun. I then decided to use it to make a birthday card for my “adopted” daughter, Cathy. Her birthday is next month……..I sure hope that she will like it!

Oh, and I just have to mention this. Do you notice the beautiful designer paper? I love it……I purchased it from Michaels a few weeks ago when they had the “get 7 sheets of 12x12 paper for $1.00” sale! I wound up buying ten sheets of this particular paper for only $1.40…..WOW, what a bargain!!!
