Final day for our Ink Yourself Silly week.... We hope you enjoyed it and that it gave you more ideas on how to use your inks, whether you are a beginner or an advanced crafter.
Gay is your host today as it's Simply Saturday and has done some really striking cards for you.
This card uses Versamark ink and I brushed gently over the stamped image with mica powder and stamped the sentiment afterwards.
The versamark ink is quite sticky and accepts the mica beautifully.
This is a detail of the sentiment.
Here is an example of a very simple card with Versamark used as a watermark.
The sentiment is stamped in black.
This card uses the other stamp from the set which is the reverse image. I inked the stamp with Versamagic this time, it's chalky and brilliant on dark cardstock. I used a light pink and green and you can't really see in the photo but there is a subtle shading in real life. The sentiment was inked in Versafine, Onyx black which is my go to ink for a rich deep black image but not for use with copics as they will bleed with it.
My last card is using Versafine again but this time it's the brilliant Deep Lagoon, a really rich colour that gives a wonderful strong impression. I've turned the card on it's side and added the bird in Onyx black to make it stand out.
Versamagic Chalk ink Pixie Dust and Aloe Vera
Versafine, Onyx Black, Deep Lagoon.

Tip of the day
Versamark also is brilliant for embossing and makes a good watermark image.
See you soon,
