Happy Monday!
Today I am going to share with you a fun technique I just learned.  Its a resist stamping technique using Tsukineko VersaMark Watermark Stamp Pad and the “No Place Like Home” stamp set from Honey Bee Scraps Etsy Shop.

 

 

I started with some glossy Artist trading cards.  ( a glossy surface is a must with this technique ) I cut my cards down to 2 1/2″ square, then using a 2 1/4″ template I traced an outline onto my card. This works best with a pigment liner pen so it will not smear. Next,  I stamped several of the little Airplane images from the stamp set with the VersaMark ink.  

I also stamped two sentiments from the same stamp set on two accent pieces.  
You will need to wait a couple of hours for the ink to dry completely before going onto the next step.

 

Using Distress ink and a sponge applicator,  apply the ink in a circular motion covering the entire piece of card stock. The Distress Ink colors I used are: mustard seed, wild honey, mowed lawn and peacock feathers.   

 

My completed 4×6 card has been double matted onto blue and white card stock and embellished with some fun enamel arrows.  I think this PL card is perfect to use in my recent travel album.

 

As Always,  I am thankful you stopped by today. 

 

Happy Scrappin’
