Technique Tuesday!

I really love learning and trying new stamping techniques, so I plan to share new techniques that I am playing with. So….this is the beginning of   Technique Tuesdays!

This weeks technique is one that I shared with my stamp clubs in May- Versa Shadowing.

It is so easy and looks so impressive with very little effort. I first saw this technique used on    Erin Gonzales’ Blog: Hand Stamped Style

I just love the shadowed effect with just an addition of outlining around a white image. Just use the fine tip end of a versamarker and outline the white image (I like the effect a little better if the image is embossed with white embossing powder).                                   It really makes the white images jump off the page…LOVE IT!

Here are several cards that I made using this great technique.

I used basic gray card stock on both of these cards. The versa shadowing shows up really nice on darker colored card stock.

The card on the left used River Rock card stock and the card on the right used Sahara Sand card stock. I just experimented with different colored card stock to see what looked the best. Some colors do not work, like Black for instance, it is just too dark for the shadowing to show up.

I hope you give this easy technique a try. I think you will really like the results. ENJOY!!
