Technique of the Week!


POPPIN PASTELS
Card was done by a fellow Demo Jean Nauta
Thank you Jean!

1) Use as a VERSAMARK PAD ( pg 190 #102283 $7.50)
2) Poppin' Pastels: Stamp w/VersaMark (VM) then use a cotton ball or Sponge Dauber to rub Pastel Chalk ( pg 152 # 105542 $24.95) over all the CS (or just where you have stamped). The colors will stick where you have stamped & will "pop" out. To do 2-Step stampin', let step 1 dry completely (use heat tool ( pg 186 # 100005 $29.95 if desired) before doing step 2. (also used was the Round Tab Punch (pg 195 #108340 $15.95 and Ticket corner punch #107214 $6.95)
Other Techniques you can try are:
2) Reverse Pastels: Using Pastels, rub color onto black or dark CS. Ink stamp w/VERSAMARK PAD & stamp onto CS. The pastels will stick to the wet stamp & the CS color will show through. Be sure to clean stamp before reinking!!
3) Resist: Using glossy CS, stamp image using VERSAMARK PAD. Ink brayer & brayer over stamped CS. The color will not stick to the VM. Also works on matte finish, but looks better on glossy.
4) WaterMark: When you stamp on colored CS, the CS becomes darker where you stamped - perfect for making backgrounds.
5) Use the VERSAMARK PAD for regular embossing by stamping the image and then covering with our embossing powders, shake off, Heat and let cool , The image will then be raised
You can also embossing using any of our CRAFT inks , stamp the image, cover with CLEAR embossing powder, heat and let cool.
