I was recently tempted to buy some clear stamps in the Henbury Lane collection by Papermania as they looked so pretty and delicate but was dismayed to find that the delicate flowers are almost solid polymer and it is proving very difficult to get a good result. I was thinking soft grey outline images delicately coloured with watercolour - no chance!! I tried various approaches and so far this is the best I could manage - I'm not really happy with the image but have made it into a card anyway as I didn't want the money spent to be entirely wasted. I think on balance I prefer rubber to polymer for stamps and maybe I will try not to be so easily led by the illustrations on the packets in future.
Background paper is from Papermania Rose Garden collection with some other bits and pieces from my oddments box. Image was finally stamped in pale grey Memento ink and coloured with Copics.
