I got to have a little play with the new stamp this afternoon. I was very thrifty as well as I used a piece of card that I had cut off as excess from another project, so used that, it is only a small card, but just right I think for this stamp. I had to practice a few times, and am still not totally happy with the end result, but will try in on the rock a blocks when I can find them lol.
Ok so there I was quite happy with one of the results on the scrap card, that I decided to stamp onto the main card....... inked it all up really well with the Impress Carmine ink pad and stamped onto the card..... to my horror I had managed to miss out most of one of the eyes :( that is soooo very frustrating. I nearly scrapped the whole idea at that point, BUT I cut out the image that wasn't too bad on the scrap card and just stuck on some sticky pads and decoupaged it LOL. I don't think it looks too bad, I did cut off the feet on the scrap card one as I had cut it too straight.
I guess what I have learnt today, is that when stamping, you have to have some sort of pad to stamp on, that will take a bit more investigating, and also that there can be ways round things that you think are ruined. But most of all I need to practice, and practice and practice some more at stamping.
What does everyone else use for stamping on? Oh and did you notice my clever use of using a coloured ink pad so I wouldn't have to colour it in?? Genius I call it LOL. Still waiting for any colouring in Workshops lol.
