Most paper crafters are familiar with VersaMark ink.  It's the most commonly used ink for heat embossing.  If you're not sure what heat embossing is, you can find my video on it HERE

Today's quick tip video teaches both watermark stamping and also a technique using eye shadow.  

Yes, I said eye shadow! 

I've also included a library list of my other embossing videos and a list of LOTS of other uses for VersaMark.   

Be sure to scroll down to see them.

Uses for VersaMark

BRAYER RESIST – This technique looks great when done with VersaMark. Stamp image(s) onto Glossy White cardstock (coming June 1st!). Gently wipe away the ink using a lotion-free tissue with small circular motions. Ink up your brayer and roll it over the paper. Wherever the VersaMark ink was stamped, the paper will resist the colored ink from your brayer. This works on Whisper White and Very Vanilla cardstock as well but without the glossy finish.  

EMBOSSING ON GLASS – Using the embossing buddy first, then using the VersaMark to stamp the image on glass, then emboss with detail gold or silver embossing powder. 

DISCREET JOURNALING LINES – Although the VersaMark ink is sticky when applied, it dries like regular ink and loses its stickiness. It is acid-free and safe for scrapbook pages. It works perfectly on all Stampin' Up! colored cardstock.

PRESERVING CHILDREN'S HAND PRINTS – VersaMark is a great pigment ink to use on little kids' hands to make embossed hand prints because it is clear and cleans up easily. Adults can ink up the child's hand in VersaMark, stamp on cardstock. Sprinkle gold or silver embossing powder and heat set.  Frame it and this will make a great gift for Mother's Day and Father's Day, too!  

CLEAR EMBOSS RESIST – Stamp an image using VersaMark on Whisper White, Very Vanilla or any Subtles cardstock. Sprinkle with clear embossing powder.  Let cool.  Sponge over the clear embossed image using an ink color of your choice and watch the embossed image emerge.
