I am wanting to stamp an image onto paper, and then color it in.  These are animal pictures for a memory game I'm working on.  I am using colored pencils to color in the image.  I stamped the image and let it dry overnight before I started coloring and it was still a big mess, the colored pencil picked up the black from the stamp and made streaks all over the place.  Is there a trick to this?  Or a particular brand of inkpad that will dry so I can color it in?

Are you using pigment ink? I find that it takes forever to dry (without help) and smears easily.

"StazOn" might be your best bet. Its basically the Sharpie equivalent of ink and will stick to just about everything and dries quickly.

Thank you!  Yes, I'm using whatever scrapbooking ink was on sale the last time I was at the craft store.  I will certainly look for the brand you mentioned the next time I am out.

You have a pigment ink. It needs to be heat set first with a heat gun. That is the ink used for embossing.

You need a dye ink like Versafine. I use Versafine for all my color pencil images.

You need a non-smear ink... 'Archival ink' is great. It's waterproof so you can use watercolour pencils or twinkling h2os on it, it doesn't smear, and it dries very quickly.
