    Beate Johns answers your technique questions
    Q: Koleesa asked: "My rubber cutting scissors are all gunked up. What do you use to clean yours?"
    A: Try soaking a paper towel with rubbing alcohol. That will remove any adhesive residue from your scissors. There are several other products on the market that would work, like Goo Gone®, and even Stewart Superior's Ultra Clean™. Check out more tips here.

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Holly has a hint for the Misting with Alcohol Markers technique: "Another option is to spritz the paper with alcohol and then stamp with a stamp that has the ink applied…..or apply ink to a die and then cut out the die of paper that has been spritzed with alcohol."
