There are no rules! Do what you love. I love to watercolor, and I use artist watercolor paints frequently. For stamped images, you may prefer a paper that's less textured, so you get a clear impression, and use ink that won't run with water. I prefer Versafine, but sometimes reach for Memento depending on my mood.
