    1. Petti...haven't you ever done soot stamping?

    2. I don't think so, though I have a vague recollection of using a candle to smoke a page years ago so maybe I did.

  2. Hi Sue, Thanks for sharing my dear friend. Love your cards and I love soot stamping! A tip...for a more rustic look, burn some of your edges a little. It is a great effect, especially for a male card. I use Krylon's workable fixative on mine. Dries quick with a mat finish. Big hugs to you and Happy stamping, your long ago & still are friend, Lori (used to be Mama Cheese Mouse) :)
