On these cards, I used the Versa Shadow Technique demonstrated by Erin Gonzales of Hand Stamped Style. Here's a link to her short video tutorial: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pMRl3hkM95E. It's simple and very effective. As Erin mentions in her video, it's a way of making a white-stamped image stand out. Erin, thank you for sharing this technique. I loved the way it turned out.

To easily create a more conventional shadow, check out Anna-Karin Evaldsson's Layers of Ink Challenge from WSW11. She used two-layer stamping to create the shadow, but that's not the technique we're using for this challenge.

You need white pigment ink and a VersaMarker for this challenge. I figured someone would ask so I tried it using the Dove Blender Pen; and once it dried, you couldn't see it. Of course, alcohol blending pens don't show up at all. I even tried it with a TomBow Marker in a darker shade than the stamped image. If the marker touched the white ink, it colored it. It was very hard to use and I quickly gave it up. I tried picking up VersaMark ink directly from the ink pad with a Precision Tips Q-Tip, but I made a huge mess when I applied it to the cardstock. All those experiments made me appreciate how easily and beautifully the VersaMarker put down the watermark.
