Hi crafty friends!  This is Steph Ackerman, a design team member for Ann Butler Designs and I’m going to show you how to use Art Screens to create perfect backgrounds.  The design team is taking over the Clearsnap blog and I’m so excited to share how I used Crafter’s Inks with the Stars Art Screen to create perfect backgrounds.
