I have not used Amuse or Fresh inks yet but my experience with inking edges with pigment inks is they do smear and will leave marks if you lay them on your card surface before they are dry...I learned that the hard way. After a marathon day of making cards I had smeared almost half of them accidentally with my pigment inks
After that epic fail I switched to dye inks and haven't had a problem with smearing. Now I will say that not all my clear stamps take dye ink very well. I'm interested in trying Fresh inks to see if they really do dry quickly.
