How to emboss a stamped image
Powder tends to stick to areas where you have touched the card so it is a good idea to wipe the card with an anti-static pad or talcum powder before you start.If you are embossing a black outline it is better to use black ink and clear powder. This saves the powder marking the non-image areas. However, if you have a solid black area such as a silhouette you will need to use black powder to get the intensity of black. You can use a tinted inkpad for most colours of embossing powder, such as gold and silver, with very little visual difference to using an inkpad of a colour matching the embossing powder.
