That's a really great sketch and I love what you've done with it...especially the inside stamping! Love doing that myself. :)

Here are two links to Gamsol tutorials. The first is right from SCS:

Here's another one that I did on my blog where you can use baby oil instead of gamsol:

I personally like gamsol a little better, but either way will work. Oh, and I bought my gamsol at Inky Antics (it's completely odorless). :)

Have fun!
