Michael Strong was just in The Netherlands doing a stamp show and visiting with Hetty Sanders. They made a fun video tutorial for a gatefold card using Michael's Octagon stamps. While I don't have that stamp yet I do have his Paisley set with which I made this version of the card in their video. You can see that tutorial video by visiting Michael's blog. http://www.blog.strongstamps.com/
The very first time I can remember hearing of Michael Strong was on the Gingerwood message board. The stampers were raving about seeing him on the Carol Duvall show. When I finally figured out how to see him on that show I learned about his Faux Cloisonne technique. The paisley's on this card were done using it. So fun to have come a full circle on this one!
