ScramperJ.....For any stamp and especially larger stamps, you have to press down on each area of the stamp to your paper. If you're only putting your hand down over the stamp, you may be missing the center of the stamp or one or more of the edges. Your hand is not perfectly flat to press against the stamp, so you have to carefully move your hand around to give even pressure on all areas. When inking your stamp, press evenly on the ink pad with the stamp or the pad to the stamp (which ever way you choose to do it).

I find that chalk inks don't give as crisp a stamped image as other inks. Also, if it's a detailed stamp, it will not show all detail as well. Also depends on the paper you're stamping on. (These are all based on my experiences and other people may differ.)
