Technique Club Sample

Technique Club this month was focused around Glossy Cardstock and some of the techniques that can be done using it. This was the first card that we did using a technique called "Ghosting". I was amazed at the difference in using a brayer on Glossy cardstock, it is so much easier.

  1. Stamp Glossy Cardstock with Background Stamp (I used the Sanded background in Always Artichoke)
  2. Stamp the image that you would like in the background ( I used the leaves from the Le Jardin Botanique set) using Versamark. *it's super hard to see so make sure to have a plan for your layout
  3. Using a Brayer, roll your ink over the entire piece of glossy CS (I used Mellow Moss)
The Versamark ink works like a resist to prevent the ink on the brayer from adhering to the card.


  1. Ange, did we use classic ink or craft ink when we used the brayer? I couldn't remember. Thanks. Love, love, loved this project.

  2. All the ink that we used on this card was Classic ink:)


Thanks so much for your comments; they are GREATLY appreciated. They are what keeps me posting from day to day:)
