Every once in a while Hero Arts steps out of the expected and produces a stamp like this. It stamps perfectly. This designs "reads" water at first glance, turbulent waves not friendly kids playing on the beach at all. This also reads as a sea of sand begging for silhouettes of camels and palm trees or other Egyptian images. As a geographer I see topographic lines from USGS maps in shades of greens perfect for hiking, backpacking and camping. Finally this makes great tone-on-tone backgrounds even in bright colors for an abstract effect. I love stamps that speak in all sorts of languages!
I've been checking this stamp out for the longest time and finally put it in my cart... So glad I did... Makes great subtle backgrounds if you stamp it with a watermark or tone-on-tone colour, or a bold statement if you use black or a high contrast colour... And it looks so pretty done with embossing powder and then coloured with watercolours...
