This stamp pad is amazing! I use watercolor a lot or mix water with my distress inks and was always having the problem of my ink running. Not with this! I will never stamp with a different ink if I’m going to add color to my stamped images. Another bonus is it wipes right off the stamps. I thought that it might stain them, but so far so good! (I do wipe my stamps off right away though). This ink is well worth the money!
