    Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
    Q: onecraftykittensg asks: "I tried out a stencil and ink blending for the first time - is there a way to fix the fuzzy lines I got?"
    A: The fuzzy lines are due to the stencil shifting slightly as you blend. If you're using a panel that is smaller than your stencil, try taping the panel in place on the back side of the stencil. I've also been using stencils in the magnetic base of my stamp positioner lately - in addition to the tape, the magnets provide a great hold!
    Feedback From Past Tutorials
    Rosy has an idea for the 3D Dies tutorial: "I can see making 3D shapes, then linking them as a type of mobile from the ceiling - for babies, the infirm, anyone who wants something pretty to look at, gently swaying in a breezy room. Thank you!"
