That was a red rubber stamp of a simple 5-petal flower silhouette, mounted on wood. But I have several others stamped 10-12 times, and still no clean impression.
I could tell you brands, but they are brands I had always thought very reliable for stamps. Same for inks. I had never had Stazon fail. And VersaFine failing is such bad news. It was the most dependable of all inks. But the case the pad is in doesn't look the same, now that I think of it. In fact, I have VersaFine in 3 different cases and all have had reinker added fairly recently, so they're plenty wet but stamp as if the ink is watery and bead-up on the Photopolymer stamps.
SUCH a quandry! What ink do YOU use?
