    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Funstuff asked:"StazOn Ink pads say they are solvent ink, is that the same as alcohol inks?"
    A: Alcohol inks are a type of solvent ink yes. Ink falls into three categories - water-based (like SU and Ranger Distress) Pigment (like some by Color Box and I think Amuse) and solvent - like Staz-on and Ranger alcohol inks. Each have their own applications.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Connie has a suggestion for the digital paper piecing tutorial: "I think I might try putting slightly larger pieces of the deco paper on the copy paper; then using the "extra parts" to make additional cards -- you know, kinda rotate the pieces around."
