“One of my favorite ways of using this ink is with Pearl Ex powders to easily get some "wow power" on a card! Ink the stamp with this ink, stamp the image, then use a stiff brush to immediately place a small amt. of Pearl Ex (or similar micro-powdered color) over the image--covering it completely; wait a few seconds then brush off any extra powder with a softer brush. Glorious irridescent colors can be added to a card or other stamped project using this process.”
“Every stamper should have at least one VersaMark pad in their inventory. It is the perfect answer to embossing with powders. When I use a colored pigment ink pad to stamp and then a clear powder to emboss, on occasion it will not heat properly, so that's when I use a VersaMark ink pad and then use the colored powder to heat, it never fails to make a beautiful image. I have two in my inventory because I never want to be without one.”
“When I entered this review, there were already 52 other reviews of this product! No wonder, this product is THE BEST!!! You can use it in so many ways. I love to use it as a watermark on my solid colored card stock. It just looks so crisp and clean. And you can use it for embossing powders as well. Your powders stick really well to VersaMark. You won't be disappointed when you purchase this product. It is a great price for a great product.”
“Very cool! The effect is really neat. I did learn though that if you want to do this as a background and then emboss something on top of it, you have to wait a LONG time to let the ink dry so that the water mark doesn't get embossed as well”
“This is a favorite for rubber stamping enthusiasts like me! Of course it's great for embossing, but I just love to use it on colored paper to make a background with a textured stamp!
It's subtle but cool looking.”
“Well not quite - but I just love my VersaMark pad. It is great for watermarks on dark card stock but also great to use with any opaque embossing powders. I love, love, love it. Refils are essential because you will use this a lot.”
