    YES Nat – loved seeing your ‘rule of 3’! And you are so right – the fun of foam is that it’s not a perfect imprint – which is what I love best about your foam stamps. But then, I have always been weird that way – never wanted to do anything the same as anyone else!!!! I think your foam stamps are INCREDIBLE…. just like YOU!!!! XXj.

    Thanks. I bought your bird and it and I can tell you ways that it doesn’t work well! Looking forward to trying it again!

      Tommy, glad you liked the video and yes give it another try. Just keep in mind that a foam stamp is not providing a perfect image as a rubber stamp and that is the wonderful thing about it. You can create texture with it – visual and actual texture and there are many more ways than the three I showed in the videos to apply paint – I will share some other tricks and tricks in the coming months. Hope you have fun with the bird stamp! Nat

    I’m glad that you showed how to store the cut and foam with paint on it. I would not have thought of that. Thanks for the tips.
