Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

It's Christmas and I hope all of you are enjoying the holidays with your family and friends.

This week my Blast From the Past challenge is for you to work with one of my favorite coloring techniques; using colored pencils and OMS (Odorless Mineral Spirits).

Here is my card using this coloring technique.

I want to thank Geri and Brenda for also preparing cards using this technique.

Now it’s your turn! Please watch both Coloring with Colored Pencils and OMS videos then upload your card using this technique to the StampTV gallery with the key word stvbpss03.

You have until 8 p.m. central time next Thursday, December 31, to upload your entry. A winner will be drawn at random and may choose any Gina K stamp set valued up to $24.95.

You do not need to use Gina K stamps to participate. A little perk though, if you do use Gina K stamps in your entry, your name will be added to the random drawing twice. Remember you can only enter the card you create for just one challenge. Using one card for multiple challenges on STV is no longer permitted.

Here is the gallery link to all cards entered with the stvbpss03 tag.

Great challenge Selma! Just did this a couple of days ago. Your card and Brenda and Geri's are so cute/pretty! Thanks and have a Merry Christmas!
Oh this is a blast from the past. Given that I just got 30 new copics... LOL! I will pull out my pencils, just for you!
Oh, this is a wonderful challenge, Selma! Your card is stunning! Gorgeous samples from Geri and Brenda!!
Great challenge, Selma. I love using mine. But I admit like Ky... I just got 72 new Copic Sketch markers!!!! SCORE!!!! I haven't opened my gifts yet... just that one that my kids wanted me to open BADLY last night. LOL My hubby said... "it's just the beginning..." Hmmmm????? Hee Hee We will open gifts this afternoon after my son comes home from his dad and grandma's house.

I will definitely do your challenge though... Copics or not. *smile*
Wow, I was just thinking that I needed to experiment with this technique again! Thanks for hostessing, Selma. All of the sample cards are great!
Beautiful cards Selma, Brenda and Geri!
THUD! Selma, you did this with pencils??? oh wow..what am I doing wrong..mine pencil coloring never turns out like this...and Geri and Brenda - show stoppers!!!! will be doing mine tonight...quiet and just DH and I enjoying the rest of the it!
Selma, your card is drop dead gorgeous. I love all the fabulous details. Geri's train looks like a real train poppin out of the page and Brenda's crustacean in a bucket is the cutest thing ever. What a fun challenge. I haven't colored with pencils and OMS is a long while.
Great technique to revisit, Selma! Your card is absolutely gorgeous as are Geri and Brenda's! Here is my card for the challenge:
