Smooch Spritz Problems

I know about the clogging & haven't had that problem, but it makes my ink run!! I used SU new ink pad, let it dry for a couple of hours, then sprayed with the CS laying flat & it ran all over. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for any help.

Well since the SU inks are water based, that makes sense. I've used it with India Ink (made for watercoloring) and Memento and haven't had any problems. Were you using basic black? Or a color?

Well that's definitely it - you can't use anything wet with the basic dye waterbased inks - you need to use an ink that is suitable for watercoloring.

OK, I had no idea! Neither did my SU dem.
Thanks very much for taking the time to answer me, I'll have to rethink the cards I'm working on.

Try spraying cardstock first, then stamp after it is dry. I did that (not on purpose), and it worked great!

i like "smooching" first anyway, that way the stamped image is on "top" and is clearer.

i also like to stamp over a "smooched" background with a pigment ink and emboss. it really POPS off the smooched background!

there are lots of smooched projects on the clearsnap blog - link in my siggie - if you want to see some of the ways is can be used.

have fun experimenting!
