OMS and pencil crayons



sorry I haven't posting in a while... somehow, every year around summer, I don't feel as creative as I would during winter or fall. But I was recently invited by Thanh from "Make it sweet and Neat" to her Crafts and Food card making session with her friends =) It was so much fun!!! She's so talented! You guys should visit her blog ASAP.

here are some of the cards we made!

anywho, TGF is having a challenge where we have to use pencil crayons, and the only way I colour with pencil crayons is with OMS (odourless mineral spirits). The only thing about OMS I'm concerned about is the harmful mineral vapours when inhaled or ingested, and it can cause irritation when it  comes contact with your skin. My OMS container doesn't have a protective sponge top cover or pump to prevent the vapours from escaping... so I think I have to transfer it to a glass pump. I'm just not sure where to buy one... maybe IKEA?

so anyways, here's my entry for TGF - pencil crayons and feeling sketchy!
