I printed light on dark (white on black).  Light ink rarely does well on dark.  It worked with light ink and clear embossing powder, but it didn’t work particularly well.  Mine worked and looked much better for me when I used any color ink + white embossing powder.  If you can find a yellow ink + clear powder that works, that’d be your best option because clear powder is much easier to use.  But only do a few and come back to how they look in a day to make sure they haven’t faded overnight.

If you have to go the colored embossing powder (yellow rather than clear) route, here are some tips I learned for making sure excess colored embossing powder doesn’t stick to your field:  Don’t touch your envelope with your hands, because your hands are oily and embossing powder will stick where you touched.  Grab it genty by the edges, and away from where you are stamping.  Secondly, you can get a very thin bristle brush and use it to brush off extra powder before you apply heat.
