how to stamp...

so the basics of stamping: a few simple rules to follow are: choose the size of acrylic block to match your stamp, take the ink pad to the stamp, always keep one hand on the stamp and apply even pressure with the other all over the stamp.
if you struggle with your hands or your hands are too small to grip the block, you can take the paper to the stamp instead (shown below)
there are some times when you might want to break the rules, for example when you want to create a background quickly and are using very small stamps or want to create a distressed background using the rolling technique shown below.
