Versamark Resist Technique with Paint Play

Dear Crafters,

Today I share a card using the Versamark resist technique, also known as ‘Ghosting’. It is really simple but effective. Start with glossy white card and stamp the flowers with Versamark ink. Let it sit for a few minutes, while you score your Night of Navy card and cut a strip of Berry Burst and Powder pink. Glue these together and then stamp the sentiment for the retiring Butterfly Basics stamp set in Night of Navy ink.

Now the glossy card has had a bit of time to rest, it will still be sticky, but you can now go and ink up the sponge brayer and apply across the entire gloss card. Once you have the desired coverage, using a piece of paper towel, rub in circular motions to remove the ink from the versamark images. Cut the glossy card down to size and glue to the base card. Add the sentiment strip.

To finish it off, I added some of the Glitter enamel dots, they are so divine and add that little bit of sparkle. I also added a Berry Burst Bitty Bow.

Both of the stamp sets and the embellishments will be retiring and are only available while stocks last. Be sure to add them to your shopping cart now.

Brayer Card

Good morning Stampers,

Today for the first time, I had a go at the brayering technique and although I wasn’t overly happy with the outcome, it turned out okay. I think I need lots more practice with this tool as I have seen some amazing cards using the brayer.
