Patience is not one of my strong suits either.

Dry time depends on your local weather...dry or humid, etc. Also a greater surface area will require more dry time than a small spot on a flower. You could place it by a fan, just as long as you don't let it go flying off (weight a non-stamped part down with something) otherwise you might be peeling if off one of your walls.

So I re-did it, and now I'm not touching it again till tomorrow morning! I'll upload it then too. I love the way it looks though and the technique other than the 'waiting period' is easy and fun. I plan to do more of these cards in the future when I have more reinkers. I don't know how you ladies are getting your cards dry and posted so fast. Mine is kinda thick cause I wanted a nice, rich color. Maybe thats why. See you tomorrow.
