    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: Ginger wants to know: "How can I stamp multicolored fall leaf images?"
    A: If you have a stamp positioner, this technique is very easy! Start with your lightest color and ink the stamp up randomly. You can soften the edges of your inked areas with a baby wipe. Stamp, wipe the ink from your stamp, and repeat with your next ink color(s). You can also apply the ink with a dauber. This tutorial might give you some ideas. Another option is to create a multicolored ink "pad" with drops of ink on a baby wipe - that tutorial is HERE!
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    We loved this tip that Katy shared in response to Yvette's Ask the Artist question HERE about making a card for a visually impaired recipient: "Re: Yvette's card for a blind person, I did make such a card for a blind couple. I found a braille alphabet and wrote Merry Christmas using gemstones. She could use a background of her choosing and use gemstones on top. Sighted folk can enjoy the card as well as recipients."
