Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Pat asked: "I have been trying to stamp on domino tiles. I use an ink pad and Sharpie® markers to color. What kind of finishing spray do I need to use? I have been using a sealer and it causes the colors to run. I stamp the imagae in black Stazon®."
A: If you're using solvent based inks like Stazon and Sharpie, the sealer needs to be water based. If you're using water based products, you will want a solvent based sealer. You always seal with a medium that is the opposite of what you have colored or stamped your images with.
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Donna has a suggestion for the telescoping image techique: "We did something similar, but if you cut all the shapes from plain cardstock, then nest them or stack them as you wish and then stamp the images, everything would line up perfectly."
