Versamark

Recently I was asked about using Versamark, so I created a project to give a little plan to do so. Hope it helps!

First I began with the following items. It is important when stamping with embossing powders that you are prepared to work rather quickly even though the Versamark ink is tacky and slower drying than other inks.





















I attached my acrylic stamp:



















turned the Versamark ink pad over onto the stamp to "ink it up"



























stamped on my paper and quickly dipped it into UTEE

















shook off the excess



















heat embossed























restamped the same stamp with other inks and stamped over the clear images made by the Versamark









inked another stamp








stamped









UTEE again









reinked the same stamp in this YUMMY ink by Ranger









It looks like this open and smells good too!
Press stamp into the ink








apply to paper






Can you see the watermark created by Versamark?
Tadah,
it's a simple card that I added a sentiment stamp and doodles to as well.








I added the same bee stamp inside :)
That's it!

  3. I have actually never used Versamark for that purpose! Thanks for the tip. I usually would put Versamark on a stamp and then use a light colored paper and stamp it. The Versamark brought out a darker pigment of the paper and dried that way.
