TUESDAY'S TIPS

A quick thanks to Amber for changing the background ~ it's fantastic!!

Hey ~ Cindy and I were thinking along the same line for today's tip!
We came up with some uses for the plastic backing that stickers or acrylic stamps come on.
First, Cindy suggested using these clear backings when you are contemplating a stamped image on your layout. She suggests that you can stamp onto the transparency and play with it on top of the layout until you find a placement you like. Also, if you have several clear pieces, you can "test drive" different colors of ink or paint.
Second, I have been using the plastic to hold my acrylic stamps for stamping, instead of an acrylic block. I like using my hands to apply pressure as I find it helps to make sure the ink reaches all nooks and crannies without applying too much pressure which then smudges the ink (I seem to do that sometimes with the acrylic block).
Third, I have used this plastic for shaker boxes....

Let us know what you think ~ or what you do with the plastic backings. ;-)

Happy Scrapping
