Hello! I'm so excited to be hosting my first challenge on SplitCoastStampers (SCS) today. I am hosting the Ways To Use It Challenge and today's challenge is all about Versamark. It's a tried and true stamping staple. I opted to break out my Versamark marker and pastel chalks for the challenge to see what I could create.
I used my background stamp in black. After drying, I colored in the flowers, flourishes, etc. with a Versamark marker then chalked where I marked. Then I added another distressed background stamp to give the card more of a vintage feel. Finished with a bird, twine and ribbon.
Here are a few ideas for using Versamark to get your creative wheels turning:
• Heat Embossing
• Pastels / Chalking
• Watermark Images
• Resist (stamp on glossy paper, then brayer ink on top)
Join in the fun, it's so simple. All you have to do is create a card using Versamark, snap a quick photo and upload it to SCS (enter keyword WT284). That's it, easy peasy lemon squeezy. Leave a comment if you are inspired to go create!
