Today’s Technique Tuesday is all about inking up a stamp! This has come up a lot lately in my classes and I thought of a fabulous way to explain it so here it goes! Kiss the Ink Pad….don’t give it CPR!
You will notice in the ink pad above that there are lighter spots all over. This happens when you press too hard with the stamp into the ink pad. Pressing harder does not give you more ink. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. It presses all the ink to the side and leaves you with very little ink on the stamp. So next time you are stamping, remember to lightly kiss the ink pad for nice full coverage ink color! No need to press on it like you are doing CPR!
