THere is now less than a week to go until the current Summer Mini catalogue finishes! It’s also the time to say goodbye to the beautiful Sale-A-Bration sets. You can still place an order before 10pm on Wednesday 31st March next week. So call or email with those things you still have on your wishlist before they are gone forever!
These two cards were made with the best selling Butterfly Prints set. I’m really going to miss this set and the matching punch that goes with it. This is the technique that I demonstrated at the Craft Expo – Versa Mark resist or “Ghosting”. It’s a quick and easy technique and you can achieve this look using a Brayer, Versa Mark, and any Classic inkpad on Glossy Cardstock – all available from Stampin’ Up!
Starting off with plain, white glossy card, stamp a bold image randomly in Versa Mark (the Butterfly Prints or any other bold stamp image works really well for this technique). Then Brayer over the top in any colour you desire (the medium stregth colours work best- not too dark, not too light). The Versa mark images with show through the more you work in the Classic ink with the brayer!
You can then stamp over the top of the “ghost” images if you wish and also add other punched out images to add dimension to your design.
Here is a list of the ingredients I used to make my cards –
Stamps: Butterfly Prints, Inspired by Nature, Vintage Labels
Ink : Versa Mark, Lavender Lace, Lovely Lilac, Elegant Eggplant, Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust and Only Orange Classic Stampin’ Pads
Paper : White Glossy Cardstock, Lovely Lilac, Elegant Eggplant, Really Rust, Pumpkin Pie cardstock
I hope that I have inspired you to have a try at this technique at home !
