I just could not resist the adorable critters in this stamp set! Now that the weather here in Southern California is turning chilly (hey, I actually had to wear socks!), I figured it was time to pull out these little guys. I tried a new technique on these. Not really new new, but new to me. It is called VersaMark resist, and it was so easy! And it turned out great, if I do say so myself. How does it work? Well, I’ll tell you. You start with glossy white paper. Stamp whatever image you want to stay white with VersaMark. (I used the snowflakes from Christmas Punch.) Then you brayer over it with the color you want to be the background. That’s it! No embossing, just use a tissue to wipe away the excess ink that doesn’t stick to the VersaMark. Quick, fun, easy, and gorgeous! I love it!
