I’ve been waiting for Stampin’ Up! to produce a new 2-step stamp like they used to have such as Watercolor Garden I-II. I was SO excited when I saw this “Lotus Blossom” stamp set in the Sale-A-Bration catalog! I also love the photopolymer stamps but I do admit that they aren’t quite as clean as SU rubber stamps. However, I am happy to concede a little (very little) of the clarity for being able to see where I’m stamping. So anyway I was anxious to see how this stamp worked.
My very small opinion is that the photopolymer does not quite give the same fabulous results as SU rubber 2-step stamps. They were always able to give the rubber stamps a little more texture– but I do love this as well! I used this week’s MOJO sketch. Hope it inspires you!
