I have had comments both here and on my Splitcoasters gallery about the difficulty people have with using the roller type stamping systems. I have had major problems in the past with producing straight lines and I would now like to share my solution with you. I hope that this one photo will be illustration enough.
My essential equipment and materials are a magnetic mat and steel ruler, and copier paper. Using the lines on the mat, it is easy to position the copier paper and the card blank so that I am ready to position the design where I want it. I place the rollagraph on the copier paper, next to the ruler. By starting on the paper I find that I get a more even distribution of ink on the card. The magnetic ruler sticks the card firmly to the mat and leaves me with two hands to get the desired effect.
