More Clear Stamps...

I picked up a few of the $1 Autumn Leaves clear stamps by Rhonna Farrer to play around with last week at Joann's. I couldn't pass up such a great deal! I have, however, found at least one disappointing thing about acrylic stamps...they do not accept dye inks very well. The images are splotchy and watery looking leaving the images incomplete and uneven. I believe that I read Julie HRR made a recommendation for chalk inks, which I am in complete agreement. The images are much more clean and crisp. I would also imagine that pigment or craft inks would work just as well for coverage.

I wasn't sure that I would end up actually using this stamp, but I have created a few cards using it already. DH actually named the file..."bird poo", which I haven't bothered changing yet. lol. Come's kinda funny! I am ready for a relaxing weekend of cleaning (I can cleaning be relaxing???) and a little bit of stamping as well.
