Ghost Stamping and Masking
I had some free time to make some cards this week and I can't wait to share them with you. As you know, my blog states that I am a "novice." Mostly this just means that I am always learning about/trying new techniques. The card I am sharing with you today uses a technique I haven't tried before: ghost stamping with white ink and a darker background.
Here is my card:
I first learned of this technique from the uber-talented Jennifer McGuire. You can learn about it here and here.
I masked the center of the card with contact paper and then stamped all of the images I wanted to use with white dye ink. Next, I stamped the flowers with colored ink and then masked them with post-it's before I stamped all of the leaves. It's not embellishment heavy (even though I am entering it in the AEIheartU Challenge this week for embellishments), but I threw some enamel dots on it and used my Wink of Stella brush to sparkle up the flower centers.
That is all for today! I will share another new card tomorrow! Thanks for stopping by!
