Hi there! they had this on one of the VSN sometime last week, still have to try it.

Ghosting is super simple, and so much fun! Here are basic instructions:

With Versamark, stamp your image on glossy cardstock. If desired, stamp other images in classic ink. Allow to dry. You can heat-set with your heat gun if you are in a hurry or just impatient like I am!

Once all images are dry, ink up your brayer (I use the rubber attachment) with Classic (dye) ink (darker colors work better), and brayer quickly over entire piece of cardstock. Continue adding “coats” of color until your background is even, and you reach your desired shade.

Finish your card!

Don’t have glossy cardstock? You can use inkjet printer glossy photo paper! Don’t have a brayer? You can use a sponge! Don’t have Versamark? Try using Craft (pigment) ink and embossing with clear or white embossing powder instead of stamping in Versamark… you’ll technically be doing emboss resist, but you’ve got to play along! No excuses ladies!

Because of the extra drying time, I’ll be a little more lenient on the 45 minute time frame… however, I’ve found that if I work on the rest of the card while the ghosting piece is drying, it’s usually dry enough to brayer by the time I am ready to mount it.
