... oh so versatile. I've had it in my craftroom for ages, but I mostly use it simply for embossing. Last week's lesson in Rubber Stamping: Back to Basics course that I'm doing on MCC - My Creative Craftroom - covered just how useful Versamark ink is. I've already shown some of my early attempts at brayering - not the best!! However, today at craft class I decided to have a go at a resist technique.
It's easy peasy!! But the catch is having good quality gloss card - which I didn't use in my early attempts - and makes a huge difference. So I used some of my Stampin' Up! images, inked with Versamark and then brayered using Kaleidacolor inks. I am delighed with both backgrounds, and I will post the completed cards once they are done. In the meantime, this is what they are like now:
Now I know I've used the next technique before, but it's so simple and I'd sort of forgotten about it. Simply using Versamark on a stamp, and stamping onto a pastel (or not too dark) card. The image left is a tone darker then the starting card. Easy!! And effective. Again, both these cards are works in progress, and I'll post the finished cards later this week.
That's all for today - I've got loads of house stuff - washing, ironing, etc to do, as well as finishing my OU assignment. I've done some - but keep putting it off in favour of crafting :))) That's so much more fun. Anyway, I'll be back again soon. Thanks for reading.
