Cork Stamping

Supplies:
Cork
Waterproof Ink
Blender Pen
Chalks
Crystal Lacquer
Adhesive

Instructions:
   Stamp on cork with the waterproof ink of your choice.
   Color or shade, using chalks and blender pen. You may also use colorfast markers, but the color is usually too dark one it is on the cork. You can help alleviate this by using plain water on a paintbrush and carefully removing some of the marker color from the cork.
   Highlight stamp elements with crystal lacquer, if you choose.
   Carefully tear around the stamped image. If you use sheet cork, it rips quite easily.
   Adhere to cardstock, tile, whatever!
