    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Nan asks: "When you have colored an image with watercolor markers, should you seal it with something?"
    A: I haven't found it necessary to seal marker coloring on cards. The exception would be if it's going to be exposed to water - in that case you might want to seal it with a thin layer of Micro Glaze.
     
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    bbgeltz has a tip for the Wax Paper Cuttlebug Resist technique "I embossed a piece of wax paper in an embossing folder. Sandwiched the embossed wax paper between two pieces of cardstock. Placed that inside a folded piece of copy paper and ran it thru my laminating machine. Wax embossed image was now on each piece of CS which I then inked with Distress Inks. Didn't have to use my iron for this technique."
