    Hi! Loved your video and tips for black card stock. I have used some of them before. I love your metallic water coloring. Absolutely gorgeous! And that is something I’ve never tried before. Probably a project for today.
    I hope all is well. You definitely can go crazy during this time. I am the opposite of your situation, I have a severe respiratory condition which would not be very good to contract this virus. My husband is a paramedic and out in the middle of this chaos. So he brought me down to his parents place in the middle of nowhere. But I brought my craft stuff. I hope that you and your family remain healthy. Thank you. ~Tammy

    Hi. I just watched your hop video w the Techniques you used on black card stock. Interestingly enough. I had not heard of or thought of the first one that yoh called Chalkboard.
    I was curious if you have tried the baren when you used a background stamp on your stamp positioned to assist in applying pressure to get a good transfer of the ink onto the card stock? I see artists really putting along of muscle into that process.
    I would love to be entered into your drawings for the glue you mentioned. It seems like as card makers, we are always looking for a new glue.
    Thank you for sharing your talent.
