In answer to reader questions: I wanted to supply a few tips for Blending Stumps – using the Sunny Studio Cruisin Critters stamp set. The question is a basic that, I guess I just assumed people knew: Is there a correct way to hold a blending stump?

A variety of uses of stumps provides a variety of effects – smooth, textured, or somewhere in between.
I swatch two ways – the hex chart uses heavy pressure and blending solution, and the square swatches are light pressure. That way I know readily what effects I get with different uses.
