Does it make a dif­fer­ence if you use coloured em­boss­ing pow­der and clear ink or clear em­boss­ing pow­der and coloured ink? To be hon­est, not no­tice­ably! It just de­pends on what you have in your stash. For a very slight colour, mix a lit­tle coloured pow­der with clear pow­der, stamp, em­boss, then ink over the top as a re­sist tech­nique. Even if I’ve left a stamped sen­ti­ment to dry for a full day, it still smudges if I ink over it. Can you help? It’s likely that it’s to do with the type of ink, rather than how long it’s been dry­ing for. For colour­ing or ink­ing over a stamped im­age, use archival ink, such as Ver­samark. How can I get my clear stamps to stay on an acrylic block? For ex­tra re­as­sur­ance, try the Non-slip grip from Stix2. Cut it to fi­ty­our block, and it will hold stamps in place for ink­ing, stamp­ing and clean­ing.
