Reverse Soot Stamping and Boo to you!!!!!!!!

Good Morning Everyone!
As promised here are the Directions for my "Happiness is a Journey" card. the technique is called "Reverse Soot Stamping".
1-Stamp your image with Versamark onto glossy Cardstock.
2-Hold image over lit candle (I use a taper candle as the wick is longer) touch flame to paper and move constantly to not burn it but to well soot it.
3-Take a paper towel or soft rag/cloth and wipe off. That's it!
Then just trim your image and mat as you like.

Here are two cards I made for my two grandchildren, Chase and Kayla. I know these have been around but I couldn't resist not making them.

Have a Happy Halloween everyone.....and as always,
Have a Stampinglee Good Day!

Great cards! I have used the sooting technique before but for something different. This method looks sooooo much faster and easier than what I did all those years ago!

Hi Lee, I love the sooting tech for this train. It looks so awesome, like a train would of really looked like!!! I'm sure your grandkids will love the cute cards you made for them. Happy

Oh Lee, this card is so beautiful! I love the soot stamping; never did the reverse kind though - may have to try it. But it sure looks great with this train set. I'm guessing you used a spray to seal it. TFS Wanda

The wonderful part about this technique is you don't have to seal it as you have already wiped the soot away. No praying necessarey.
