I've often had difficulty stamping with gold ink pads, especially on dark cardstock. The only way I could get a good, high-contrast image was to use embossing powder. I read about Delicata in a card making magazine which gave it rave reviews. It has lived up to its description. It gives the look of gold leaf without the hassle, even on black and navy cardstock. It's also supposed to be non-tarnishing. Unless I need the raised effect I get from embossing powder, this is my go-to ink for my stamped cards from now on.
