The vintage sepia is a must have for fine detail stamps
“This is THE BEST inkpad for fine detailed stamps. I have several of Stampsmith's detailed stamps and this ink is unbelievably beautiful. It is primarily made for matte paper and of course does as advertised- gives you a crips clean image. However, I have successfully used it on glossy and it gives an even better image on glossy. One downside: the gray color doesn't seem to do so well. It seeps into the matte and glossy paper. I have found the same is true for the Memories line as well and Ancient page. The gray is no good. However, the Tsukineko memento line ink is great as well, including the gray.”
“I love this color for a real vintage look, and have never found a better ink to produce fine detail. You trust the versamark clear pad for embossing and using with chalks, and this is the same great quality for stamping to produce a distinctive detailed stamping project. This should be on everyone's list as the best ink for detail, just as we buy detail embossing powder. The results will make this purchase worth every penny!”
“I use Versafine for all my detailed stamping and it is brilliant. Adding this one for my vintage look cards as it is a beautiful colour (I've seen it used) and a must have. It will go beautifully with the Versafine olive for partial inking of an image.”
“From one of the reviews, I think I will get this pad to use with the watercolor images. I agree, I think it will look softer than with a black outline. I think I will use it for my Christmas tags too!”
