My tip for the hop is for how to get a clearer image with your acrylic stamps. Have you ever had the ink look blotchy after you stamp? To get a clearer image try this:
1)First ink your stamp in Versamark 2)Then ink your stamp in the ink pad color of your choice (without cleaning it) 3) Stamp your image
You will get a much sharper stamped image. If you are doing multiple images of the same stamp, just don't forget to clean your stamp before you put it back into the Versamark!! Happy stamping. This technique reminds me of melted chocolate - the Versamark is sticky like chocolate & helps the ink to adhere better to the stamp.
