Book Study - Resist on Glossy Paper

This week in our study of Julia Andrus' book "Paper Transformed" on NGS group. we're looking at the section Resist on Glossy Paper. This is one of my favorites. First stamp an image on glossy paper with VersaMark or Resist ink and let dry or dry with heat tool.
Brayer on dye ink. Sometimes I like using Distress inks for the longer drying time and blending colors.
Use paper towel or tissue to wipe off the excess ink and reveal the stamped image.
This one I rubbed the ink pads directly onto the glossy paper over the VersaMark Inked image:
This one, I rubbed a rainbow dye ink pad over the image:

This looks like a really cool technique, and easy to do. Thanks for showing it :)

I really like the colors of the butterfly, and it actually looks pretty simple to do. Maybe I'll go ahead and give it a shot.

This has been a favourite technique of mine for a long time. Simple and effective. Thanks for reminding me.

Love the butterfly - the images pops beautifully and the colours are lovely

I love these! I especially love the doorway stamp and the arches stamp. do you remember where you got these and/or what brand they are?

I bought those stamps at vendor's night at Art & Soul retreat. I think they are either from Lost Coast or Invoke Arts.
