  34. I went through the hop, your videos with hints, explanations and tid bits are the best. Yes I got info from some of the others and new techniques. You understand the mind of an artist and move in for details turn the paper, explain why you do certain things and why someone else may prefer another way of getting a similar result. Thank you Lindsey…again and again. 🙂 PS Pretty card.

  46. Wow–great video. And the cards are terrific, too. One question–how do you know where you want the white resist to be? Do you do a draft coloring of the stamp first, or, being the genius you are, do you just know? That would be the hardest part for me–knowing where to put the white crayon.

    • hahaha:) I just “play”! I first add the mask where I want white and paint my lightest color,then mask when I want to keep that light tone and add the next darker color. You will learn by playing, stamp out a bunch and have fun!
