VersaMark Techniques X 4

I used VersaMark in four different ways on this card.

1. Just stamp an image with VersaMark for a watermark effect like the large butterfly. You can heat the image to speed up the drying time. I also sprayed the blue mat with Shimmer Paint mist.

2. Heat emboss any colour with VersaMark and ink  as I did for the sentiment. (You'll have to wait for Sale-A-Bration to get that sentiment stamp!)

3. Make gorgeous resist butterflies.

4. Use VersaMark to paint an area for heat embossing. See the butterfly bodies.

-ink a stamp on a VersaMark pad
-apply any ink colour with a sponge dauber
-stamp the image and cover it with Clear embossing powder
-shake off the excess powder and heat it

-stamp an image with VersaMark and emboss it with clear or coloured embossing powder
-apply ink to the image with sponge daubers or markers
-wipe ink off the embossed image with a tissue
-apply Shimmer Paint to the image with a sponge dauber
-heat with a heat tool
-squeeze some VersaMark from a refill bottle into the lid of the pad
-use a blender pen to paint it on the body
-cover it with Irridescent Ice EP
-heat emboss and punch out the butterflies when cooled
