I acturally bought the Prismacolor Premier (48 ct.) with a 40% coupon off from Michael's Craft Store. And now I've been buying just single Prisma color pencils from Dick Blick. I think they're like .98 cents a piece to get more colors to my collection. I love using the Prismas with OMS. I seem to have more control with my shading. I think you'll be really surprised how well the OMS works with the color pencils.
Thanks Rhonda for commenting on my Tayla with Ghost Costume card. OMS is Odorless Mineral Spirts. I buy it just from a hardware store. I first outline an area with a color pencil, dip a blending stump (usually can find in the art department) in OMS and blend out the color pencil so it looks shaded in the areas you need. Usually blend in a circular motion. I hope this helps. Let me know if I can help some more.
