My first attempt at Prismacolor & Gamsol

Ok here it is, my first stab at using the Prismacolor pencils my BFF, Cassie, gave me for Christmas. I have a hard time learning a new technique by just reading an instruction sheet as if that isnt terribly obvious, haha.. I am neither in love or disgusted with this card, but I am posting to hopefully get some tips and ideas from all you talented ladies out there. So please Help!
Details:
Stamps: Monkey Love (Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper: Chocolate Chip & Sugar Rush (Basic Grey)
Ink: Stazon JetBlack, Chocolate Chip
Accessories/Tools: Labels 3 & Large Circle Nestabilities, floral embossing folder,
red epoxy Sugar rush brads, Prismacolor pencils, Gamsol

Hi Christi loving this card and for a first attempt you have done so well the image looks so colourful and vibrant. I am afraid I have only used my prisma's and gamasol once but you have done a better job than me I know that Crafty Ann does a tutorial on her blog and she is one awesome crafter.

I would have to agree with the other ladies. You wouldn't even want to see what my first attempt with Prismacolors looked like {shudder}. I love the vibrancy of your colors, and that image is just so fun. I hope you're enjoying them ;D
