Linda - the baby oil dries very quickly. No residue at all - plus it smells good too! Hang in there Linda - I know how awful it is to feel so bad that you don't want to create! I spent almost a year just looking at my stuff because I felt so bad that I didn't even want to sit down and try. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Loretia - I use a paper stomp. I just dip it and blend like I would with a colorless blender. Last night was the first time I have done it - but the blending was SO easy and looks so smooth! I will probably do it that way from now on.
