I used to use Brilliance ALL the time but it seems now I have to add ink to my pad frequently (even a new pad) to accomplish that. The type of paper was discussed but no matter what paper I use Versafine still isn't black enough. I have Momento but that isn't consistent either. So, I guess the conclusion I am coming to is that you have to ink it up pretty much everytime to get that beautiful black image. I would love to hear what others say as this problem has come up many times from the gals here.
Have you tried the Marvy Black? It's really a nice BLACK black pad! When I'm stamping something that has a lot of solid black area I always use this!

Maybe we should coax Miss Meowy into carrying it in the store or telling us her source!
