Everything Papercraft - Watermarks

A watermark is an image or design that is stamped or pressed into paper during manufacture. It is usually subtle and difficult to observe without adequate lighting and will often be a company logo or security seal.

Paper-crafters can imitate watermarks by stamping with clear Versa Mark stamp pads, which will leave an image that is slightly darker than the paper being stamped on. Because Versa Mark ink is designed to stay open (wet) longer than normal ink pads you will need to leave it to dry for a longer period of time or set it with a heat gun. You could even add some clear embossing powder for a less subtle result.
