    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Heather wants to know: "What is the best type of tape to apply to watercolor paper when applying water to the paper?"
    A: Look for a painter's tape that is designed for delicate surfaces. I haven't done a side-by-side comparison, but I've been happy with the yellow Frog Tape, which comes in different widths. Scotch has a blue tape that works well, and I've heard good things about the purple tape from iCraft too.
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Charity has a tip for the Decoder Card tutorial: "If you don't have a canvas stamp, try a stamp that is just little dots repeated over and over. I did the same card and used a polka dot stamp set, and it worked great."
