Clear embossing powder is a great tool to keep in your rubber stamp tool kit (totally a thing). And you can ease into the embossing powder world without dropping bags of money on lots of different powder colors.
Use clear embossing powder with the clear VersaMark on colored paper and it has a subtle & elegant spot gloss!
Use different color inks and then you essentially have different colored embossing! Here I used a dark blue ink with the clear powder.
One fun way to use the clear embossing powder is as a resist, which means most paints and chalks won't stick to it's glossy raised surface. Try painting over the top with watercolor paints! Or use the lines to contain the paint to give a sharp edge to your projects.
