I've been stamping for longer then some of you have been alive. I take risks on stamps like these based on experience. I've purchased Deep Red in the past and was very happy with their quality. I looked at this one, and looked, and looked. All those tiny dots fading into more solid areas? Always a problem since ink loads up in those tiny valleys and squirts out when you stamp. I use VersaFine ink pads which are the best for details but that didn't help here. The best I could get were super faded colors like VersaFine Vintage Sepia and some pastels and light greys -- these still filled in and lost detail but they made background texture. These are sold as grunge but I have better results using stamps with ugly lace and over stamping a few times. Very sad.
