Today I solved a problem.
When working on a project, I usually need to choose from a menagerie of stamps. And you know how it is...5 of them will work, but which is best?
To solve the problem, I took some plastic packaging from a Sizzix die, stamped the images I wanted to try on the project with Archival Ink. You have to wait about 20 minutes for the Archival to dry but that wasn't a problem since I had three other things going on my desk at the same time.
Once the ink is dry, just lay it on any project, stand back and you will be able to see what the stamped image will look like. I am quite sure that this is not a new idea, but I figured if it could help me make better/quicker decisions, then it might just help 1 or 2 of you.
