Well I never expected that !

For a forum swap we had to make a tag with a shadowed image and for some reason I wanted to use white as the shadow after a few failed attempts I settled on glossy card and used brilliance white and then stamp with a dye ink and to my surprise the white came through the darker ink giving what I think is a pleasing effect

I am also doing an online course with Jennifer McGuire, for the first day we have done different resist techniques and this is the first card made using the basic resist with Veramark on glossy card and dye ink
On the base card I stamped with versamark and brushed with mandarin perfect pearls
Thank for stopping by :)

Wow Von, these are both gorgeous! I love the white 'shadow' effect-super cool. The resist came out perfectly, love, love love it! x

Wow, your green tag is just gorgeous and love the oriental one too. Great that you've gone for 'mandarin' rather than the traditional red. xx

Hi Von
I hope you are well. My new work is taking up all of my time at the moment and I love it, but I am missing my crafting and blogging buddies.
I love your cards and the shadow effect is fabulous.
Thanks for staying in touch and take care.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
