"Soaring close to the sun, the great Eagle is a symbol of divine connection and illumination. Eagle also represents healing and courage. In the center is Bear surrounded by the unfolding, transforming wings of Butterfly. Bear is tasting, and savoring life along with Frog. Two Orca joyfully breach while Otter and Deer watch as Salmon continue to swim upstream. Snakes are entwined to strengthen their power and healing life force. Look for the Ladybug, she brings happiness and good fortune! "
These Acrylic (Clear, Unmounted appx. 3"x4" to fit on Acrylic Blocks) Stamps are created from the art work of Sue Coccia, a Northwest Native interested in Animal conservation. According to Sue:
According to Sue: "With proper care clear stamps will likely outlive their owners. The fact is that the photopolymer used for making clear stamps was originally used and in many cases is still used for commercial business stamps. That means the FAXED TODAY, RECEIVED ON, commercial stamps used by banks and post offices - the dies are mostly all made with photopolymer. The business stamps used in a commercial environment get used 10 to 40 or more times per day. These commercial stamps - even when being used multiple times per day often last 10 - 15 and even 20 years. Actually, folks end up changing the data they need to stamp before the stamp ever wears out. So if you compare that kind of abuse to the limited use a stamp gets in the creative stamping and scrapbooking applications - it's easy to see where the stamps could last for 20 -30 years or more. Also, solvent inks and cleaners will attack the photopolymer if left in contact with it.
As long as they are cleaned immediately - it's not a problem to use solvent inks."
Sue says: "I don't recommend using solvent cleaners - the best cleaner for any stamp, clear or rubber is Ultra Clean."
