  • Water-based dye inks, such as Distress and Catherine Pooler inks, work particularly well for this because they will dry faster than other types of inks.
  • Don’t worry about getting perfectly blended inks onto the paper surface; imperfections will not be seen later after stamping over the top of it.
  • Before stamping/embossing; test the moisture level of the paper by pouring embossing powder over the top. If it clings, the paper needs to dry more before proceeding.
  • Anti-static powder also helps reduce/eliminate moisture and/or static cling on the paper surface; blow off excess. After embossing powder is set, you can buff off any remaining anti-static powder by using a soft, dry cloth.
