I knew I would have to get markers or colored pencils if I wanted to create something with a little more color to them. But I found out that I don't have a lot of patience for sitting and coloring for long periods plus I didn't know a thing about how to get just the right color shades for skin or hair. So when I saw a post on SOC about using Gamsol with color pencils I knew that would work for me.
Here are two tags I made using doll stamp "Taylor" and "Shay". For Shay I actually did the coloring with Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. For Taylor I stamped on patterned paper, cut out the pieces and layered them on top of another stamp of the same doll. I also did the skin tone and hair color using the color pencils and Gamsol technique.

I still need more practice with coloring and blending but like how they turned out for my first try.
