Also, any advice on using chalk inks? I've got the Colorbox and the VersaMagic. Versamagic seems to give a cleaner image than colorbox. Anyone else have the same experience?

Any tips/advice would be appreciated. TIA!
Chalk inks will stay wet, they are great if you want to emboss. If you want you can use a heat gun after stamping and that will set the ink.
