Pierce an inked piece of paper from the back, then sand the front to bring out the white! - I like her coloring technique with Prisma colored pencils on standard card stock (not Stampin' Up card stock)
Great info on using colored pencils - Prismacolour. Using baby oil is a great element and cheaper to blend colors vs the odorless mineral spirit. Just place a cotton ball with some drops of baby oil (not drenched) on a small jar and wet stump to blend.
