Blog Candy Roundup

Heather has put up some gorgeous candy including Magnolia stamps and cuttlebug embossing folders to celebrate her birthday. So Happy Birthday to a fellow Aquarian.

Hi Debbi, thanks for the comments on my blog. It was so cool to see them!

You were interested in the baby oil and also asked if I had any tips. To be quite honest, I have just started using it with my Lyra's, have only done 2 cards with it, but I really do love it. I basically colour with the pencil and then blend with a paper stump dipped in baby oil. To clean the paper stump I rub it on some sand paper, I find that works really well and also keeps the point nice and sharp. If I think of anything I could share as I use this technique more I'll definitely let you know.
Keep well

Hi Debbi

Thanks for your comments on my blog, it was great to see them.

You asked me if I had any tips working with the baby oil and Lyra pencils. To be honest I only just started using the pencils, I used to use Tombows, probably will still depending on what I want, but right now I am in love with my Lyras. I also have sansador, and know some people use gamsol. I somehow prefer the baby oil, don't ask me why. Maybe cause it smells nice :-)
I pretty much colour with the pencil then blend it with a paper stump dipped in baby oil. I use sandpaper to clean and sharpen my paper stump. If I pick up anything I can share as I use this technique more I will definitely let you know.

Best regards
