This is my card for Teapot Tuesday & will be going out to Bobby, a young man severely burned in a fire. Bobby loves all sports & has coached young people all his life so our mission was to bring sports related cards. The sentiment inside says: Hope you're up to par again soon.
I don't often use this stamp as it has a "soft spot" in the middle which doesn't transfer the ink properly from stamp to paper. I ended up placing the stamp ink side up, covering it with card stock & then using a brayer on the back side of the card. Several attempts later & voila. If anyone has another suggestion as to how to make this work better, I'd love to hear it.

Cool stamp, it's a shame it's a pain to use. Is it mounted? I think I'd try unmounting it and using it that way to see if it helped. It made a big difference with something I had that I too avoided using much and had to brayer when I did use it. Or else I just draw the missing lines in with a waterproof marker :D.

Sabrina had a great idea, it's probably the wood that has warped. That stamp is wonderful and is a scene I would use, could you possibly post the name of it. You did an amazing job colouring it.
