It’s Technique Tuesday! Did you know that you could stamp on more than just plain card stock? This is why we have different inks.
For normal card stock with no glossy finish just use our classic ink pads.
For glossy card stock use staz-on ink. Currently we don’t sell glossy card stock but I know it’s out there.
For wood (like balsa wood) use memento or staz-on ink. It depends on what you are coloring with. If you are painting with acrylics or staining then staz-on is preferred. If you are coloring in with the blends (alcohol markers) then memento is the best choice.
For glass use staz-on. The higher the quality of glass the better image you will have. If it smeared simply remove quickly after stamping with a magic eraser. Then wash, dry, and try again.
For cork you can use either memento or staz-on but I prefer the staz-on.
For fabric memento works best for what we carry. There are fabric ink pads out there though.
And last, but not least, for handmade paper use our classic inks, memento, or staz-on. It really depends if you are coloring also.
I hope this is enough to keep that creative mojo flowing.
With inky fingers,
