They also resist the Colorations sprays.

The Colorations are Matte sprays that can be used on

in love. It has been like that for me with the Art Anthology
line of products. The Dimensional Mediums and Stencils are a
perfect marriage with stamps. I love that I can use them for an
elegant look, or for something more grungy, both with gorgeous
I have two Techniques below, and there will be more
ideas posted to my blog (patstamps.blogspot.com) and the
Design Team Blog (techniquejunkies.blogspot.com)
over the course of this week. We have plenty of ideas for you!
Don't forget that the Sensational Stencils CD is filled with plenty
of ideas, too.
I would love to share my love for these with you!
All of the Art Anthology products will be 10% off until next Friday
