Completely cover your CS with torn pieces of masking tape, sponge or brayer with classic ink (this will darken the torn eddges), apply Versa Mark all over, then apply clear EP, and heat set.

Here is a link to one of my cards using this technique:

A step by step tutorial for this and other techniques should be added to the resource pages shortly.

Have a wonderful day.

This is my first attempt and I'll show you so you can avoid my mistake. I didn't notice until the scan picked it up.... that I didn't do a great job with the classis ink on the tape. I missed a few spots. The dark Forest Foliage really contrasts the tape so in the scan... wow, really shows up the lighter areas.

Also, I had to go back and "fill" in some holes with more ep after I heated it and saw some spots were not glossy.

HTH, Heather J
