Default How do I ?

Can I emboss with colored chalk inks if I have clear embossing powder? I have versa mark ink but I don't have all the colores of embossing powders that I need.

Thanks in advance, you guys are great with all the help and info

If they stay wet long enough, I don't see why not. You can also stamp with regular dye ink, clean your stamp, then stamp over it in versamark. Or some people stamp in versamark first, then their dye ink.

Yes you can. I always use my chalk inks to emboss. For my SU classic inks I stamp in Versmark first and then the ink pad and then stamp on the paper. It will not harm your ink pad at all. It is a PERFECT way to get tons of embossing colors out of 1 clear embossing powder!!!

Actually, in a *pinch* I have embossed successfully using dye or Classic ink. Just ink your stamp well or with a juicy pad, stamp the image, and quickly apply the clear embossing powder and heat it. I did that once for a workshop/club when I did not have the matching color of Craft ink, and it did surprisingly well. HTH!
