While it is probably fair to say that most stampers like solid stamps, I personally prefer the open-line kind. Somehow, solid stamps puzzle me and and I just don't quite know what to do with them. There are hundreds of galleries in cyber space, filled with beautiful samples made from solid stamps, yet I am clueless.
Then there are stamps that are neither solid, nor open-lined and here's where today's card comes into play.
I bought this stamp because I really like this scarecrow a lot; he is sweet, yet realistic. Yet, when it came to actually using the stamp, I was rather stumped. Initially, I thought the image would look best just stamped in one colour and left at that. But neither black, brown nor gray ink looked right to me. Black and brown were too somber, while gray turned out too light. My efforts to colour the gray image didn't exactly wow me.
Do you have any ideas or advice for me, now that you've seen my meager attempts? Do you own the stamp and have successfully used it or do you know of anyone else who did? I'd certainly appreciate anyone's help with this. :)
