Basic Stamping Tip:

How to make your embossing powder darker or lighter:

This can be done by the color of the pigment ink that you use. A Black pigment ink used under the embossing powder will make your embossing powder at least one shade darker.  So this means that a Clear pigment ink or VersaMark will slightly lighten your embossing powder. To stay as true to color as possible try to use a pigment ink that is close to the color of your embossing powder.
