Default Tip for working with Encore Ink

I love the look of the Encore inks, but they NEVER seem to dry for me. And I don't always want to emboss them, KWIM? Well, I pulled them out to play a bit this afternoon and stumbled on a solution. After stamping, brush on a bit of Micropearl Pearl-Ex. It doesn't change the color at all, and really brings out the luster. Wipe your card off with a swiffer cloth when you're done to pick up the stray flecks of Pearl-Ex, and you're good to go. Shiny, happy stamping

I usually spray with a matte acrylic sealer. I found out the hard way that Encore never dries.
