A Good Day stamp set
It’s a pretty good bet that if there is a bird stamp in the catalog, I will be stamping it. Same goes for a cute deer! There are several really cute images in A Good Day stamp set. But they are small images and some stampers have a hard time with ideas on how to feature them on a card. Here is one example on how I keep it easy to see that really small stamp on the card.
The look of ombre coloring is beautiful. My preferred method is to use a sponge brayer and ink pads.
First I place the paper on a safe surface, such as the Silicone Craft Mat. With the lightest color of ink, I work the roller sort of like rowing a boat… roll it across the stamp pad and pick it up to start back at the front of the stamp pad again. Repeat this rowing motion until the brayer carries enough ink. I apply the ink to the paper in the same way. This gives an even coat of color.
