|The pirate (ARRR!) stamp|
And so, I decided it was time for another Colorbox/Stazon battle! ARRRR!
FYI: you can see the full size image of any of the pictures on this page will by clicking on them.
Okay, first up: ColorBox on sketchpad papARRRR, the same kind of paper that is in my logbook. Not great - not every good at all actually...
Okay, so next, I wanted to tARRRy some glossy paper. Here I stamped on kids' fingerpainting paper with ColorBox. Meh.
And now, with StazOn - much better...
But what about regulARRR ol' copy paper?
Worst in show: ColorBox on copy paper... Yuck.
Best in show: StazOn on copy paper... Hooray!
But I was told that the colARRRs worked differently than the black and that I might get different results... So, colour time!
ARRR you ready? The colours here are all on the copy paper - and all generally came out really well. In defence of the ColorBox red, I actually had a really dry pad, so that's probably why it's so light, rather than the ink. Also, despite cleaning the stamp really well between inkings, the StazOn red managed to dissolve the black right off the stamp which you can sort of see in the transfer.
Conclusion? Well, since black is usually my go-to colour on the trail, I'll only really be lugging around my StazOn. Also: I really think I need to rethink the sketchbook logbook - maybe I'm losing out on some great stampings due to the paper in it... Hmmm...
Off to Boneyard Boxing today.... ARRRRRRRR!!!
