Use the full page - drawing large scale works best.
If you want to draw in pencil first, go over your final image in black pen and rub out any unwanted lines.
If you add text, make sure it's clear and not too small.
The English Stamp Company will shrink your drawing down so think about how that will translate. Shading may look good but when it's shrunk down to stamp size, it could just look black.
Be inspired by artists and designers but make sure your final piece is your own work.
