Emboss them?

Oh shoot was that Tartlet who had this problem too?  I forget, but one of the Bees said they had this issue and they went to the craft store and bought that sealant spray that you spray on like charcoal and pastel drawings to keep them from smudging!

You could also get some colorless embossing powder to put over them. I wouldn’t use a blow dryer to set the seal though. I would use an embossing tool because it won’t blow the powder around.

As far as fixing spray goes, in an art class I took, we used hair spray to fix charcoal and chalk pastels. If you have an extra envelope and some hair spray, you might try that and save yourself the trip if it works.

@bells: I think a lot of it depends on the type of paper. If you stamp pigment ink onto a paper where the ink can really soak in, it’ll dry just fine. If there’s any sort of finish or gloss on the paper, it’ll sit on top.

Yeah, my experience with pigment ink is that it takes suuuuuper long to dry, but if you want to do regular stamping with it you can. It definitely would not hurt to put that spray on though.

On the other hand, if you do want to emboss, it looks beautiful and couldn’t be easier…*biased* 😉
