Rubber Stamp Madness magazine had an article about Terry Medaris last summer. I played around with his technique.
Dini, I have seen that mineral oil YouTube video, and that's why I was surprised when my blending didn't seem to work as easily as hers. I'm practicing with less oil.

I know this technique needs practice.
I also know I am probably being too critical of my own work, and need to lighten up.
The real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new lands but in seeing with new eyes...
