How Sweet!

Sometimes folks are intimidated by the detail in these stamps and wonder how to color them.  While colored pencils are the illustrator's favorite method, there are other (faster) methods that are equally effective.  This Thursday's make-and-take features a watercolor technique that makes use of dye reinkers.  Fun - and practical - to use something you already have.  One of the things I love about this technique is the amount of control you have.  By using lots of water, you can create a very subtle wash.  But you can also create a very vibrant visual, just by reducing the amount of water you use!  Stop in Thursday between 10 - 8 and make this sweet little card for yourself!
