    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Kathy asked: " I purchased a VersaMarker monochromatic pen but haven't the foggiest idea how or where to use it. "
    A: The Versamarker works just like the Versamark pad, as an embossing as well as a watermark ink. You can apply it directly on your stamp, then stamp, then add embossing powder and heat. Or you can write/draw with it directly on paper, without using stamps. You can use it as a base to apply chalk or pigment powder over it. Or you can use it for resist techniques. Check our tutorial section for techniques with Versamark ink. Just go to the technique section and type in Versamark in the search engine there.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Gin has a suggestion for the Spirelli technique: "The more scallops that you skip, the smaller the center circle is. You can do a really big one for a picture frame, make it double sided, and use it for a Christmas tree ornament with the year of the child or wedding etc. on one side, the picture on the other. "
