You can emboss chalk ink?
Mine always dries IMMEDIATELY.

Craft ink stays wet for embossing - and offers great coverage, but the drying time is hard to work with for me.

I mostly use dye inks... but I like chalk ink a lot, too.... especially for flowers.

I have a pad of scrap paper under my project as a surface for stamping.
I always ink up the stamp - tap tap tap tap... tap tap - then stamp onto scrap paper - if the image is clear, I ink again and stamp on paper.
If the image is not clear - I keep inking and stamping on scrap until it is... then ink again and stamp on the card.

Sounds like a lot of ink - but my images are always whole and clear.

Oh - and the Stamp-a-ma-jig is great, especially like to use it for sentiments, in case they aren't dark enough, or aren't clear - you can re-stamp in the exact spot using the SAMJ!
