    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Laura asks: "I have several stamp sets where you use two or more stamps to create the image. Do you stamp from light to dark, dark to light or does it depend?"
    A: I typically start with the lightest color on the base stamp (usually a solid image) so I know right where my full image will be placed. Then I work in order toward the darkest color and most detailed layer. (Be sure to check today's tutorial and gallery for a couple of layered stamp samples, and tips on stamping multiples!)
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Jo has a tip for the Broom Lollipop tutorial: "I use 2-4 coffee- or tea-dyed coffee filters and cut the bottom into a scalloped design or use paper snips to cut strips. Tie a string to hold filters together."
