TIP: To condition solid stamps, take a Sanding Block (featured above) and rub the stamp surface briskly in all directions for a few seconds. Clean thoroughly and try coloring/stamping again. The "after" results are impressive and I took a before and after picture to show you the difference.
My color inspiration (Barely Banana, Basic Black and Real Red) is from the Color Throw Down Challenge #39. The Real Read card base is 4.25 x 5.5 and scored at the top. The sentiment is from Hidden Garden Rub-Ons.
TIP: The squares were cropped and layer perfectly using 1 1/4 and 1 3/8" Square Punches. I love these little power horses!
