Q:I’m new to crafting and was wondering if I could use watercolor pencils on my cards.
Q: What is a resist technique and what is used to do it?
A: Resist is a technique where a stamp is used to place an image on a piece of cardstock using Versamark ink and then another dye ink is added over the top. The dye does not adhere to the stamped image thus creating an area that the stamp shows through the dye ink.
Q: Is there a way to score a diagonal line on a scoring board?
A: Yes, take your scoring board before the next time you use it and use a permanent fine tipped marker to darken the groove of each inch mark. When you have a project that calls for a diagonal line, line up the score marks on the paper that you are scoring with one of the grooves on the scoring board. The marks will line up at the top and bottom on that groove and create an easy line to score.
Q: I need to make waves of water for a card that I’m creating. How can I do that?
A: Use an oval punch at an angle to create the waves. As you move across the paper keep the same angle as you make each punch.
Q: What should I use to cut glittered cardstock?
A: A guillotine cutter is the best way to cut the paper. The blade runs the length of the handle and won’t dull as easily when cutting this type of paper.
