A Nifty Set of Stamps for Budding Celtophiles
on July 25, 2000
As a budding Celtophile, I had to have this set when I saw it in a catalog....and paid about 8 bucks more! It's a good set, with a very nice box for storage. In fact, it's almost worth buying the set just for the box. An insert contains information not only on stamping, but on the Celts themselves.
You can get some really beautiful designs out of these stamps but it takes some practice, and some of the smaller ones tend to blur if you press too hard. The trick is to get a very good ink pad (Encore is the best) and learn how to apply just the right pressure. This is easier with these stamps than with other sets, as these are wood backed, which makes for a better, clearer image. I used the one with three knotted horses to make party invitations, using a multi colored stamp pad in hues of blue and purple with a silver accent. With a little work, they came out really nice.
This set is an excellent value, especially at this price, and a nice addition to any stamper collection.
