Versamark Resist Technique

Today's card uses a technique called Versamark Resist, or GhostingVersamark is a clear ink which is used to give a watermark effect on plain card stock or to apply embossing powder to a stamped image.
To get the ghosting effect you need to stamp your images using Versamark on Glossy White card stock.  Here I've used the grass image from the Inspired By Nature stamp set and the butterfly is called All a Flutter.  Once you've stamped your images, you colour the Glossy White card stock using dye based ink like Stampin Up's Classic Stamp pads, applying it either with a brayer or cotton ball, which is how I did mine.  After applying the colour to the card, just buff the card using either a paper towel or clean cotton ball, to make the white really stand out.

The sentiment is from Sincere Salutations stamp set, stamped onto Whisper White card stock with Old Olive ink.  This is then punched out using the Large Oval Punch, and matted onto a piece of Old Olive card stock punched out with the Scallop Oval punch.

Tomorrow I'll show another card using this same technique.  It's a quick and easy technique and you can make a card for any occasion using this technique.
