Blending with Baby Oil

When I color my critter images I use Prismacolor Pencils blended with Gamsol. Lately I’ve been noticing that more and more ladies are choosing not to use chemicals or have been using just Baby Oil to blend.

For this image I used Baby Oil to blend the colors together and I’m really pleased with the ease of blending the colors. I’m going to play around with Baby Oil for other images. Thanks for reading ~ Jovi

Stamps: Little Punkin (House Mouse/Stampabilites) ~ Paper: Gold Rush (CTMH), Garden Green (CTMH), Black, White, Patterned Paper unknown ~ Ink: Noir (Palette) ~ Other: Spring Moss Grosgrain, Chipboard Corner (TAC), Sakura Gold Gelly Pen, Piercing Tool (SU), Scalloped and Round Punches, Black Marker, Prismacolor Pencils Blended with Baby Oil


  1. This is too cute! I hadn't heard of baby oil...do let us know how it compares to gamsol.

  2. Im soo happy you did this with the baby oil...I hate using chemicals for anything and I see that using baby oil worked good for your card..I really cant tell a difference at all.

    Im gonna have to try it out. Thanks for sharing. Love the card...too cute!


  3. Love the card! Thanks for sharing this tip...good to know! :0)

  4. Very nice Jovi. I like how well the baby oil worked for you. I'll have to give it a shot someday.

  5. This card is so adorable. Love your coloring. I will have to try the baby oil. Right now I am using the Gamsol.It will be interesting to see wich one works best for me.


  6. What a cute card. The baby oil did a wonderful job.

  7. Wow Jovi, this card is very cute !
    The idea to blend the colors with baby oil ist new for me..
    That I also must test sometimes .
    So far I only used water for blending .
    Do you bring the oil undiluted on the image ?


  8. Jovi, as always another beautiful card....you just seem to have a way with House Mouse images :)

  9. What a cute card! I'm really liking these House Mice!

  10. Wow -- it looks really good -- I was always nervous about leaving a spot on the card -- you know, the way a spot of oil stays on your clothes forever? I will have to experiment, because it would be nice not to worry about the chemical side-effects...

    And yes, Jovi -- you do have a way with those HouseMouse stamps ;^)*

  11. What a fantastic card! The blending looks great, I am going to have to try this :) He's such s cute pumpkin!

  12. Great card! Thanks for the baby oil tip. I'll try it.

  13. I love this card...totally Adorable! Great HM image and coloring! I will have to try baby oil cause it sure looks fantasic here.

  14. Oh man...adorable!!! (don't worry I have not forgotten about you...we have not had any more to share just yet ;) )

  15. He is soooo cute!! Good idea about Baby Oil. I have a card I'm working on right now that I can try this on.

  16. This is absolutely adorable!!! I have used baby oil with my prisma's as well and its blended well. TFS!

  17. Ok, tomorrow I buy baby oil! I haven't had a huge amount of happiness with gamsol. This is so adorable. TFS
