Also, any advice on using chalk inks? I've got the Colorbox and the VersaMagic. Versamagic seems to give a cleaner image than colorbox. Anyone else have the same experience?

Any tips/advice would be appreciated. TIA!
For larger stamps I lay them upside down and ink them evenly. When I am ready to stamp, I make sure I am stamping on a hard surface. When you place the stamp down on your paper, press and hold while pressing firmly all over the stamp. Try not to move the stamp at all!!!

If you need perfect placement I recommend getting the stamp-a-ma-jig, you will thank me!!!

Hope this helps but really you will only get better if you stamp and stamp some more!
