Homemade Clear Embossing Ink....You need 1 tsp of petroleum jelly, I used the classic, Vaseline. Mix in 1/8 capful of vegetable oil.Then mix in 1/8 capful of alcohol to dilute. Mix together. It doesn't make a lot but it does make more than enough to rehydrate your ink pad.
Using an embossing folder I embossed heavy duty aluminum foil. While still in folder, I de-static, roll on Versa Mark with a brayer. Add embossing powder, shske off excess. Use a small paint brush clean up any loose powder. Carefully remove from folder, use heat tool to set.
