Floral Wishes Thank You

Here is one of the new stamp sets I bought last weekend. It is a clear stamp set and I struggled with getting a crisp looking image using my SU ink. It helped to "erase" the stamp with a white eraser. I also put the stamp in VersaMark first and then the SU ink... I think I need to play a little more with using the clear stamps. I like the clear stamps, but I'm wondering if I should try a different brand of ink. The VersaFine ink works well, but I only have it in black and brown. Hopefully I'll have some time this weekend to play around a bit more.

Thanks for looking,

Hi, Kim,
I saw your beautiful card on Splitcoast! Some people have commented that they get a better image with chalk inks with clear stamps.
