Part of my frustration with coloring small details on stamps is going slightly over the black line. For me the OMS helps those black lines pop back out. It seems to happen to me no matter how careful I am. I've tried relining the stamp when I am done and I don't like the way that looks either. Any suggestions?
I have that problem sometimes too, and use an electric eraser that eliminates most of the unwanted marks. Then a friend suggested I take some pastel chalk and lightly dust the outside edges. I often use blue as it appears kind of like a bit of sky. I've attached one so you can see if it is an idea that appeals to you.
