This is my favourite technique and has been for about 14 years, so it’s my entry for the Simon Says Stamp & Show Challenge, which is ‘FAVOURITE’.
When staying with a friend, I promised her I’d show her how to do a Versamark resist, but we were so busy, we left it until near the end of my stay and, of course, events conspired to prevent us getting around to it.
I’ve just sent her a parcel with instructions and some samples.
I’ve included two samples of each design, though there may be some slight differences in them, to show the background result of Resist and a finished ‘cover’ created by overstamping.
I know I said I was going to use mainly permanent inks from now on, but unfortunately, only water based inks work with this technique 😦
Adirondack Stream, Sailboat Blue and Purple Twilight
Distress Inks Peacock Feathers, Evergreen Bough and Adirondack Purple Twilight
Adirondack Sunshine Yellow, Butterscotch, Watermelon, Purple Twilight and Sailboat Blue
Adirondack Sunshine Yellow, Butterscotch, Terracotta, Red Pepper, Cranberry, Currant
Then one of my favourite Nancy Curry techniques; using this ‘mask’ made by tearing paper ..
… resulted in these.
Adirondack Terracotta and Eggplant
Adirondack Stream and Citrus
I know that most of you know this basic technique, but for those who don’t, I’ll be uploading this as a Tutorial very soon.
Don’t miss my destashing SALE before they’re all gone or on EBay – I’m putting them up little by little but you can grab a bargain here if you want to… !
