I finally finished this 5 x 7 inch Stampscapes scene
on glossy cardstock of unknown origin-my friend Lynette gave it to me.
Referring to Kevin Nakagawa's YouTube tutorial
I splurged and bought several Colorbox stylus tools and foam tips.
When done, I stored them in a ziplock bag as Kevin recommends.
This keeps the foam from drying out. You can clean the tips with water.
Kevin warns to hold the stylus at the very bottom so you don't break the tool.
Kevin has a great text tutorial on his stampscapes website:
I love how he shares so many tips and techiques!
I love watching Kevin create his art!
I wrote notes on this image so I would remember how I made this.
I tried to use light pressure, going one way with the foam tips
otherwise the foam will rip. Kevin shows this in the video.
I was not able to get the light "right".
Here is the framed piece that I'm giving to my son-in-law as a belated birthday gift.
