Conditioning Your Stamps

Until recently, I didn't understand the importance of conditioning your bold image stamps. Lisa and Jeannette, my friends and roommates at convention, convinced me to try conditioning and they are so RIGHT!!!

Pat Huntoon, technique guru and fellow Blogger's Challenge member posted this tutorial on conditioning.

Can you see the difference I see? Hopefully, this will convince you to condition and not to be afraid. You WILL not ruin your stamps if you use a light hand to sand.
