    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Leslie asked: "Where do you get those items I see in posts that hold a card? They usually are round with brush-like things sticking out. Sometimes they are even square in shape with brush like things that stick up."
    A: The item you are talking about is called "floral frog". You can find pretty plain ones in hobby stores, or you can check ebay, flea markets or antique stores for pretty vintage ones.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Rebecca has a suggestion for the Watercolor Embossing Resist tutorial: "This will also work with other marker inks that can be used for inking stamps like Memento, Marvy, SU! and others. Or you could use drops of ink pad reinkers painted on with a paint brush or any type or format of watercolours like pans, tubes or Twinkling H2Os and some spray or glimmer mist inks might even work if they don't dry too quickly. This technique will not blend nearly as well on Cardstock though so consider yourself forewarned!"
