I just had to try the new firm foam pad on this image from the My Friend stamp set. My set is a clear mount set and I have it on the big background size clear block. I laid it rubber up for both images and inked it that way with the ink pad directly on the rubber. The Night of Navy on the left was done with a lot of tap, tap, twist, tap, rub, tap, twist - you get the idea. And still it is not a nice crisp full coverage image. The one on the right was inked up the same way but with the new in color, Midnight Muse, which is a new Firm Foam ink pad. I just barely had to tap, tap, and it is so juicy, similar to a Craft pad. I have all the color families on their way. I couldn't wait to switch over my old pads to the new firm foam! The price is the same but if you hostess a private party, you can get some of these FREE with your hostess dollars! And June and July are great months to hostess! Let's get one scheduled so you can get a start on that new catalog wish list!
