Hi Melanie!

Great video. The oxides are just so great and I love that tone on tone. Thanks so much for sharing.

Thanks, everyone! :) :D

Hi LaRayne, This little baby snack bowl and lid come as a set at Dollar tree for a dollar, on aisle with baby stuff. They came in a couple different colors. You can also get them in 2 packs on Amazon or at Target, Susie Moore recommended because if leave them out they dry up (but can be reactivated with water like a swim towel) but they can also get a little funky if it's in a container that's closed completely! The opening on the cup allows you push it in or pull it out, or, just remove the top if that's easier. I just checked mine today (filmed yesterday) and it is damp, ready to go! it really got in all those little nooks and crannies in the image, and no lint!!  Works so much better than a paper towel or a rag (that while reusable like the towel. leaves lint), and great for the environment!  I really have no excuse now to clean my stamps, make clean up and switching pads a breeze. Will keep my nails and fingers clean too instead of removing inky stamps from the block!

Love the card and colors. Gives me new ideas to use these stamp sets. Can you tell me what you used as the top of your cup for the towel.
