I hope someone can help me with this, as I cannot find anything here that relates to ink problems.
Can anyone recommend something to use to cover up dye based/pigment-based ink on textured paper? I am making my holiday cards with rubber stamps and there are ink spots (from too much ink or rolling stamp too much) that are making some of my cards kind of messy looking.
I tried stamping over the spots with white ink - but it is not heavy or thick enough.

Thanks in advance!

I don't think it would help in your case, but when I get too much paint or whatever on an otherwise good card, sometimes I'll paint the whole thing to disguise it and start over, or past paper over the damaged area.

Did you already stamp on the actual card?  I usually stamp on a small piece of paper, if it looks bad, I turn it over and try again on the other side, and then attache the best side to the card.

Good luck!

This may be a case where glitter saves the day?
