|This stamping surface will improve the results for all of your stamping projects and in particular detailed images and silhouette designs benefit from this extra cushioning.
We would always recommend using a stamping mat underneath your card or paper - the padded surface helps the entire area of your inked image make complete contact with the stamping area. This eliminates patchy areas and brings every line of the image in to clear detail.
Stamping mat measures approx 18cm x 25cm.
TIP: Glass surfaces and very hard table tops do not make an ideal surface for stamping. Yes, you need an area free of dents and debris and it should be firm, but not so hard that the stamp cannot 'press' into the paper. Traditional wood-mounted stamps always included a foam cushion between the rubber and the wooden block which allowed for a firm but cushioned impression. Modern designs of clear stamp sit directly on the acrylic block and therefore do not offer the same amount of 'give'.
