    Q: Kim asked: "I've seen cards done where it looks like the stamp was put on glossy paper and twisted. The effect is a neat flower. I'd love the learn what stamp is used to get the effect."
    A:  I think you could use little solid flower or shapes like asterisks or snowflakes to create that effect. Check our Kissing Tutorial for a twisted sample with a snowflake.

    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Carol has a hint for Polished Stone Technique:"I have had nice results using the Metal Leafing pen (Krylon) and not having it wipe off without sealing by adding one small drop of glycerin to my felt pad along with 91% alcohol and drops of reinker. I can stamp on top of this when dry (about 3 minutes)."
