Sansodor and Colored Pencils

A while back, I posted that I bought Sansodor (otherwise in US known as OMS or Gamsol) to try a new coloring technique. I wanted to have an alternative coloring method other than using my Copics (in other word, a cheaper alternative hehe). I said in that post that the method didn't work for me, but apparently I was wrong. After finding out that a friend almost exclusively colored using this method and thought she was using Copics I was intrigued again. I found out that the paper used for this technique has a lot to do with the success of using this technique. I switched to using smooth surface paper and I was in awe! My cheap Faber Castell colored pencils did a mighty fine job! The card I made below was a result of one of the experiments I did with OMS and colored pencils. This wasn't the finest one, I did a lot better coloring with my TGF stamp but for now I'll show you this beginner coloring I did hehe.

This is also my take on HYCCT1121 challenge, theme is “Big Or Small, Save Them All!” in which we need to use two sizes of a geometric shape (circle, oval, square,etc).
