Another name for Versamark™ resist, this technique's not scary at all!


  • Glossy white cardstock
  • Versamark™
  • Stamps, Unity Stamps used here
  • Water based Ink, Faded Jeans Distress ink used here
  • Blending Tool, Sponge or Brayer


  1. Step 1

    Stamp images in Versamark™ on your glossy cardstock. Everything stamped in Versamark will resist the ink applied in the next step.

    The more you let the Versamark dry, the more defined your resist images will look like.

  2. Step 2

    Sponge ink over the cardstock.

  3. Continue to apply ink until the entire piece of cardstock is covered.

  4. Step 3

    Buff cardstock with piece of cloth of paper towel. The ink over your Versamark images will rub off.

    Your ghosted image is done. Use as main image or continue to Step 4.

  5. Step 4 (Optional)

    Stamp over your ghosted background.

  6. Step 5

    Finish your card.

What is the name of the outline and the fancy edge? I have searched and sear bed for it without finding it.

both dies are from Spellbinders. The glossy cardstock was cut with a Label 1 Nestabilities die, the black cardstock with a Fleur De Lis Square.

You can always find a complete supply list for the samples in the matching technique spotlight gallery upload.

Have a great day!
Hugs and smiles
