Default uneven stamping

Even though I have been stamping for many years, I will always stamp the image on scrap paper first to check it out,then reink and stamp the final image. This seems to help me get a well inked, even image. I also always flip the stamp over after inking to check the coverage of ink. I went to a stamp party recently and the demo urged us to press the stamp down for at least a few seconds to get a good transfer of ink. Even after all these years of stamping, I had never considered that. So now, when I stamp, I think about that ink making the leap from the stamp to the paper, and I think it helps!
