    Beautiful card. Jill, do you have a recommendation about which colors of the Pitt brush pens to purchase to do a wide variety of coloring with shading? I only own a few and never seem to be able to shade!! Thanks Jan

      Hi Jan! Thanks for your comment! I just sent you a note on your blog answering this question. HUGS!

    The multiple stamping of the poppies is so effective & I love the inking of the ATC background. The orange & red of the background of the card picking up the colours in the ATC element is very clever too.

    Another great video…am loving this PB&J series….I like the circle masking. That really adds a wonderful element-so much dimension without taking it to another layer. Cool Beans Jill!

    Super card and video Jill. Thank you. Thought I’d let you know that you inspired me to track down some of the Faber castell markers here in Oz. They are beautiful. Thank you.

    Great coloring and design, Jill! Btw., I sent my suggestions for the idea contest last month but I did not receive any response of acceptance – so I wonder if it has arrived!

    Would like to hear from Jill. Loved the card above, great design ideas. I notice that you frequently leave a tool for blending ink on the edge of your cards. Is that a stamp block with a foam pad or do you use felt?

      Hi Jan. Thanks for watching the video. 🙂 I use a blending tool with a foam pad for blending. Let me know if you have any other questions. Happy Stamping!
