Default Copics and Versa Mark

Help!!! I stamped an image with Versa mark and black embossing powder but when I started to color the image with my Copics it started to bleed. Has anyone else had this problem?

I'm not entirely sure why and have never tried it myself, but have always been told you can't emboss an image and use your Copics. (But then I've also had the occasional person say "Yes, you can... I do it all the time!" Makes no sense to me, but whatever!) The only thing that comes to my mind is that the alcohol in the marker reacts with the embossing powder. Also, and especially if you're not using the right cardstock, the Copic ink will just bleed under the embossed lines. The ink won't be "trapped" by the embossing like when you watercolor.

You can emboss and use your copics but stick to clear embossing powder. The pigment in the colored powders is what will bleed. Better off to stamp in black then emboss in clear if you want that raised embossed look.
