I've always loved Prismacolor Pencils and always sold them in the two stores I've had. But the only style I picked up on was derived from all the beautiful work that Magenta does to display their very unique stamps. Lately I've been mesmerized by the colored pencil/gamsol artwork done by Paula in her blog and many others surrounding the SplitCoastStampers community. I don't know who started it (probably Stampin' Up - or maybe they just promoted it?) I really don't know. I just know that if you start at Paula's blog or the SplitCoastStampers website, you can tool around the links and go crazy admiring all the artwork.
Holy Cow! I just made that link to Magenta in the previous paragraph and saw their new website and latest stamps...hmmmm...more inspiration there too! Maybe it's time to buy some more stamps!!! Did you notice the way they color? Lots of White and no gamsol. Very attractive too! However, I did see that connected blogs are showing the gamsol style as well!
Anyway! I like where the teapot is going... I'm just not sold on my colors or the finishing yet. More exploration and color experimentation is required! I would love to have a class with this stamp set from "Unity Stamps" but I think I'm going to have to work a little more at it!
