That's fine, if that's the look you are going for, but if you want nice crisp images here are a few inks that work wonderfully with clear stamps - Memento, Brilliance, VersaFine, Colorbox Pigment, Colorbox Chalk, VersaMagic, Ranger Archival (note Archival Inks may tend to stain your Clear stamps).
Gently use soap and water with a paper towel to wipe stamps clean. If you want to use water with a wood stamp, do not submerge the whole rubber stamp in water, as this will soften the wood and weaken the adhesive in the stamp. Be sure to air dry the stamp before storing it away.
And, what is the difference between clear and cling stamps? clear stamps are made from some type of plastic and they are literally see through. the best quality ones are made from photopolymer. cling are rubber with a foam backing. both stick temporarily to an acrylic block.
Any way, can you use paint with clear stamps?
Yes...but, you should clean them right away. And you may not get all the detail of the stamps - it's a better idea to use paint with stamps without a lot of finicky bits.
What's the difference between dye and pigment ink pads?
The basic difference is that dye ink dries quickly and pigment ink takes a little longer. Pigment ink is good for embossing because of that. ... Dye pads on the other hand dry faster and because they are saturated with color to make them retain ink, the colors actually stamp a bit lighter.
