For Beginners

Making An Impression

Use firm, even pressure when stamping any image on paper. Use the scrolled wood sides to grip the stamp on either side with your fingers.

If you see inked areas on your paper that you did not intend to stamp, that generally means you moved the stamp as you stamped on the paper or pressed too hard. This can be avoided by stamping on a piece of scratch paper first until you feel confident with a new stamp.

If the stamped image has not completely transferred to your paper, use a small paintbrush and dab ink, from the side of the ink pad to add color in the areas needed on the paper.
