Nothing can be more frustrating than inking up a solid stamp and ending up with less than perfect coverage on your card stock. At times, a little image imperfection can look vintage and chic. However, I typically like a crisp and complete image. Today's 1 Minute to WOW! Video Tutorial shares a simple way to use a Stampin' Up! Blender Pen to "fill in" the gaps without having to start over (including a before and after sample).
STAMPIN' PRETTY TIPS:
- For better coverage with background and solid stamps, I prefer to flip the stamp rubber up and add ink with the pad facing down. I keep "patting" ink on the rubber image until I can see that it is evenly covered. Here's the snail stamped with this method. No touch up required 🙂
- I have tried to use a marker to touch-up uneven images. However, the markers can leave a dark, noticeable spot where you have corrected. The Blender Pen remedy is a softer look that you can control.
