I have never been one before. I have to try everything once, don't I? Yeah, I do. The commitment is not for very long and I really do like the stamps. I figure that the summertime is a good time for me to play. It is also a challenge for me - to see what I can do with these stamps.
I just got these stamps from Diva Impressions. I can't tell how something looks just by looking at the rubber. I need to stamp it on something to get the full picture. Well, I had the chipboard ATC backs and some Versamagic Chalk Inks that were dying to be used. I also like the Powder Puff ink pads as well. Can't use black StazOn for everything. So, I just quickly used the Versamagic pads and inked up the stamps just so I could see what they really looked like. You can see what I did in the scans above. Click on the picts for a larger view. Some of the details are not as sharp since I used chalk ink. I overstamped some of them so it would be more clear. Yeah, I will have to use the black StazOn with some of them or some other ink besides chalk based. I do like them though because of their smoothness and they dry pretty quickly.
