Ask Beate
Beate Johns answers your technique questions
Q: Daisy asked: "I have a question about marbling. For this technique you put re-inker into a clear tray and roll a marble around in it. Then you lay your stamped image/paper into it and lift it for a marbled looking affect. My question is, do you use regular card stock or water color paper to do this?"
A: I have only tried this with regular cardstock. But I am sure watercolor paper as well as textured cardstock would achieve great patterned look. This technique is the focus of this week's "Try a New Technique Challenge. Check it out and see what you come up with.

Fran has a suggestion for the Ghirardelli Box: "Just wanted to add that nine Hershey's Kisses will also fit nicely in this size box."
