  7. I popped over to answer your question about stamping on aluminum foil and found this lovely :)Lin this is so stinkin cute! I love those pattern clouds big time!
    Anyway, stamping on slick surfaces can be tricky but you can do it! Just make sure you go down and straight back up so you don't smear. As far as the drying you have to use a solvent ink, I used Ranger Jet Black archival. iIt takes a little time to dry but eventually it will, dye inks won't at all. Hope this helps :)
