I gave you a little hint of this yesterday; a tip about how to make sure that your thin/narrow Photopolymer stamps so that they are the shape the designer envisaged. This is particularly helpful when you are using 2-Step stamps, so you need them to line up properly.
It really is not too difficult, but I know that some people are not aware of this. The key is to make sure your stamp is ‘relaxed’ when you attach it to your clear block. Now I don’t mean that that it should have its legs up with a cool drink! What I do mean is that it should be placed image down on a matt surface and left to ‘relax’. With the stamp still on the surface, place the clear block over it to pick it up.
Magic! It is the right shape and will marry up with the other elements of a 2-Step stamp perfectly.
I hope you found this helpful. Please come back tomorrow to see the next Inspire.Create.Challenge project.
