here is a card that I smudged just for this post to show you what I normally do without trying:
I had to darken this to make the print visible, in real life it is very visible!!
To remove the print I just simply lightly sanded the area of the print, I sanded of the ink leaving the paper unmarred.
you can see there is no more finger print! I accidentally hit to much of the layer paper and then tried to fix that (black smudge) Well I sanded that and then added a layer of ochre colored pencil and you can' t see that error now. This also works on stamp "halo's"!!)
I also use these sand blocks to give my new stamps a quick rub to take of the silicone coating from the factory. That is why new stamps often don't stamp well. The blocks are also great for distressing!
I hope you find this trick helpful, it has been a huge time saver for me!
Have a great day!
Great idea Ginny and have a piece of block which is cleaner block for this purpose to meant for cleaner cups etc and is white and use it dry on work like paper, or wet on china, etc. love Shaz in Oz.x
