Painted Fingertips | Review - Born Pretty Store Stamping Mat

Hi everyone!

Have you tried one of the silicone stamping mats that have become popular recently? I feel like I’ve seen them everywhere lately, and I honestly didn’t quite see the appeal – what makes this better than working over a magazine, or using a stamper head to make decals?
