Versamark Resist and Using Fabric on Cards

This card uses the Versamark Resist technique. To make the main image panel, I stamped acorns (Abundant Blessings by Verve) onto glossy cardstock using Versamark and let dry. Then I sponged More Mustard, Dusty Durango, and Bravo Burgundy ink over the acorns. The Versamark will resist the other colors of ink and remain white on the multicolored background. I also used this technique on the snowflake card below.

The layout for this card comes from Verve Visual's October release sketch challenge VSOCT09B. The colors in the card got inspiration from The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday Challenge.
Another Versamark resist card.
  • Paper: Designer Prints Pack (SU), Night of Navy, Whisper White, Glossy White
  • Ink: Versamark, Bashful Blue, Night of Navy,
  • Stamps: Verve Winter Wonder & Snow Wonderful
  • Accessories: 7/8" satin in navy ($.35/yd), 3/8" striped organdy in light blue ($.11/yd), Kaiser Rhinestones in dark blue and silver
I just found Mercy's blog today. I decided to participate in her sketch challenge. The main burgundy panel is stamped with the Aida Cloth background, then I cut a hole in it with a scalloped rectangle die. The printed background is actually fabric that I stitched onto the backside. The center poinsettia is popped up and all 3 flowers have gold glitter in the centers. The stamps are from Poinsettia Christmas by Verve.
