I am not a stamper! I love to do it, but i am not good in it. So I am afraid to stamp on the actual project, but I also don't like cutting them out.
At CHA i learned that memento ink was the best ink for coloring with copics. So I bought a little one to bring back home.
What they didn't told was wich paper too use. I had some nice scraps of sturdy shiny thick card stock. The first stamped image looked fine! So I went ahead and stamped 15 of them (birthday invitations)
But when I came back to them for coloring they where al streaky and ugly. I still tried out coloring on them.
But also that looked streaky and not like the coloring I saw at the show...
So I tried a stamp on normal card stock, the inkt soaked right in leaving a crisp image, same as the copic, it blends perfect and the ink stay's in it place too!
So I have some new stamping to do and coloring and then tonight the ScanNCut is going to cut them out! Yay!
And I might actually really really like stamping (and coloring:-))
