Default Dark gray embossable ink...

Ok - can anyone point me in a good direction for a dark gray/pewter color embossable ink...

I love the new Basic Gray SU color but it doesn't come in a craft ink version and I am looking at maybe stamping and embossing upwards of 150 wedding invitations so doing the versamark/ink color is not an option for me...

Not sure if this helps you or not but you could do clear EP over the basic grey if you love that color....

Brilliance Platinum Planet (I think that's the name) is a great pewter color, and embossable.

I'll second the Brilliance Platinum. It's a great colour.

stamp first into versamark, and then into the basic grey, and then onto your CS or paper. then use clear EP.

BAM! works with any color. just remember versamark FIRST!

1. versamark
2. ink color
3. onto CS or paper
4. clear EP and heat

hope this helps!

yeah I know that...but I don't want to be doing it 150 times a few times this method works great...150 X's and I probably would be throwing my Versamark across the room

Default dark gray

Colorbok makes an antique pewter
and
versacolor has one called charcoal
either one of these might work.

Use versamark and get some pewter embossing powder. I don't think SU sells it but I'm sure somewhere online would have it.
