  63. Wow, what a super simple yet powerful technique. You come up with the best ideas. And the spider stamps are just completely adorable! It looked like the wax resisted the stamps, too… did you just re-stamp them to make them show up better, or did you end up going over them with a marker? I’m still trying to figure out when to use the dye vs pigment stampers (mind you, I only own six stamp pads at the moment, but hey, it’s a start).
