    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Betty asks: "Years ago you shared how to use clear embossing powder and ink to color it so you didn't have to buy different colors. Would you share again?"
    A: Your best asset would be a MISTI. You would be able to make multiple impressions in the same place, using any colored ink, and then a clear embossing ink with the clear powder. If you don't have a stamp positioner, you can ink up your stamp with Versamark ink before adding dye ink - the Versamark makes the impression embossable, and the color of your ink will show through the clear powder. Learn more about the MISTI in our My Sweet Petunia forum.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Consuella learned a tip for the Tri-Shutter Card: "I've seen and saved several tutorials on how to do this card. I was not pleased with my results and wasted a lot of paper. Yours showed how to make the slit using the Scor-pal. I'm off to get a metal ruler and try again. Thank you."
