ETA Ret's Question - I have a question about your Red baroque motifs card. did you mean that you ink up your stamp in versamark, (don't stamp it) go directly to your dye ink pad & then stamp on your cardstock.Did I understand this right?

YES - by inking your image in the versamark then directly into your dye pad, you'll be able to adhere your CLEAR embossing powder - and have a color embossed image using CLEAR embossing powder! Have Fun! Lisa

Yes, that's correct Ret - ink your stamp in versamark then right into your dye ink pad, now your clear embossing powder will stick and you'll have a color embossed image without using colored embossing powder.

This is a GREAT tip and I've never heard it before! Thanks so much for sharing it. I don't have many coloured embossing powders and now with the new INcolours this will be fantastic!
