I’ve created these two cards using the large and small peach image, you’ll have to check out the rest of the Flourishes Design team to get a peek at the cherry images – they are just as beautiful!

I colored both images with Prisma pencils and odorless mineral spirits – here is a link to a quick video to show how I achieved the color.

    Nancy, I thoroughly enjoyed your video! I WILL try those little coloring tools with my Prismas and OMS. Your peaches turned out fabulous with your coloring. I love this set!

    Beautiful coloring! Your tutorial is very helpful. I will use your tips as I continue working to improve my coloring. Hope to be coloring peaches very soon!

    Hi Nancy, I just wanted to thank you for your great video showing this technique. I’ve often wondered about it, and now I completely understand it!! I can’t wait to try it out. It seems like such an affordable way to do some gorgeous coloring. I already have a great set of pencils; I just need to add the OMS and coloring tool (A.C.Moore, here I come!). Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge!! (Your peaches looked awesome!!!)

    Wonderful video. I have used my Prismacolor pencils with Oms before but now I know I can achieve even beter and greater quality in my coloring and blending.
    Thanks so much!

    Loved this video demonstration. I’ve used Prismacolor pencils for many years, but never tried blending with odorless mineral spirits. Gotta run out and buy some and give this method a try. It definitely makes the fruit look more realistic. Thank you for showing this technique.

    Thank you for showing us this technique! I was fascinated with the colouring you did and want to try blending with OMS now too 🙂

    Your cards are beautiful and I truly enjoyed the tutorial. It was extremely informative. Thank you!

    Hello Nancy,
    I just stumbled across your tutorial via Rubber Stamp Chat, and I am SO glad I did – it was really easy to understand. I know it will help me alot with achieving more depth with my colouring. I am a real hands-on person and it is much easier for me to watch someone do something than just look at a finished image and wonder how that sort of depth was achieved. Thanks so much!
