Tips if you havent used a stamp before. If you buy a new stamp ensure that you use a file to file away at the surface of the stamp. (This just seems to remove the initial shine & ensures that the image is picked up off the plate).
I have got the Barry M varnish in the Silver & Gold Instant Nail Effects Range. And also Konads own varnish.... I've not investigated on other varnishes but I am sure the thicker consistancy ones are the ones that will work well best x
In the meantime (whilst I highjacked this image) I really like this set you have done....
As sleeping beauty has said buff the stamper first. I now find it easy to do but I did struggle at first until I read the thread on the main forum called something like 'Konad All you need to know'. This inspired me to get my stamping kit out and I haven't looked back. (I now have a collection nearing 500 images which drives my customers mad!)
