A New Trick

I was over at my friend, Cheri's house the other night as I promised I would show her how the whole gamsol and a stump trick worked. She loves to color images so the technique was right up her alley. She we got to coloring and realized that we didn't really know how to purge the stump of one color before going on to another color. We also noticed that the smaller images were sort of hard to get at with the stump.

So, Cheri got the bright idea (I am probably the last one to figure this out) to use sandpaper to clean off the stump and to sharpen the stump to make the end more pointy so it can reach the smaller places on a stamped image.

This tricked worked really well and made coloring with gamsol alot easier. What other tricks are you all using to get at this problem? Leave a comment if you have any tricks to share with gamsol. I will hopefully be posting a card later in the weekend. I made two cards this week for Mother's Day, but can't post them because I don't want my mom or mother-in-law to see them!

Have a great weekend!
