The stamps are Magenta’s new clear stamps — I was sent them as a thank-you for participating in the Roxane-le-Cat swaps last year.
A note on clear stamps — I had trouble with the clear stamps when I first used them because pigment ink was beading up on the stamp and I couldn’t get a good impression — so I emailed Picatso at Magenta, and here’s what she said: “The beading on the stamps is normal with your first inking as during manufacturing there is a thin coating of silicone on the stamps. This is normal for photopolymer stamps and rubber. I’ll scrub my stamp with stamp cleaner before I use them to remove the coating…..try it, it works!” Hope this helps someone — does anyone else have any tips on using clear stamps?
Supplies: All stamps by Magenta. The brown frame on the square card is also by Magenta — it is some kind of silky material, and I stamped on it with Ancient Page Chocolate ink and colored on it with Prismacolor pencils. The pink paper is by Bazzill. I also used Tim Holtz Distress inks in tea dye and old paper.
