This stamp creates the coolest effect! It stamps in two-tones! It shows the original ink color and also a lighter version of the ink. We think it really stands out from the rest. Tips from Paper Smooches:
Tip 1: Apply ink to entire surface, press onto paper and press evenly all over the surface - Use a brayer for even coverage.
Tip 2: Apply ink to entire surface...leave stamp facing up and press paper onto stamp...apply even pressure and gently lift paper.
Tip 3: for even ink coverage, first stamp onto a clear Versamark pad, then apply colored ink, and then stamp as usual. This will help the ink "stick" to the stamp.
Tip 4: You can "condition" your stamp surface with a clean rubber eraser.
Tip 5: All ink types work well with our stamps. It may take some trial and error to "get to know" your stamps.
