Who can resist this Versa Mark Resist Technique? It's simply gorgeous and so simple to do! I have to say, when I first became a demonstrator I tried to do this technique but was unsuccessful every time so, to say it's easy is to know the trick to make it really work. lol
I love the soft colour combination is so appealing to me and makes wonderful non-standard use of my Autumn Splendor stamp set. This card I totally cased from a Convention Swap card I saw at my friend's house and don't know who designed it. Normally I use leaf sets only in the fall but this card suits many occasions. Unfortunately, at my stage of life I seem to need a lot of sympathy cards so I used this greeting from "Teeny Tiny Wishes". I had so much fun making it I created many other versions stamping Happy Birthday, Happy Anniversary and Thinking of You as greetings so this card can be multipurpose. I just noticed my photo doesn't do justice to the little pearl that's beside the greeting. Look again and you might notice it.

1. Stamp images on glossy white cardstock in Versa Mark ink. Space you images so that some go off the paper.
KEY****SET ASIDE to DRY FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR OR HEAT SET WITH YOUR HEAT GUN!
2. Once the versa mark is dry ink your brayer with classic ink of your choice and roll it over the whole surface of your glossy cardstock. Repeat if necessary to make your ink even or darker.
3. Rub off excess ink with a kleenex and your versa marked images will appear white as they resist the classic ink. Stamp over the whole glossy cardstock in the ink of your choice. Here I used pool party. It's darker looking as it's more intense when stamped.
