Hi! Today I'm sharing a card using the ghosting technique. It.'s going into the challenge at CAS Stencil.
Here's my card:
This is such an easy way to get a subtle and pretty effect and more from your stencils. you simply cover the card with blended ink colours, lay a stencil over and use a wet baby wipe to lift the colour. I have tried this technique before by dabbing on bleach - very smelly and not at all nice. A baby wipe is much better and actually gives a far nicer result too.
I matted the panel onto black and then a white base card and added a popped up greeting and a trio of clear droplets. these clear droplets are currently my favourite finishing touch, love how they pick up the colour of whatever they're stuck to.
Stamps: Uniko, Simply Said Blocks II
Inks: Versafine Clair, nocturne; Ranger distress oxide, wilted violet, picked raspberry, twisted citron
Stencil: ARTplorations, Happy Flower
Embellishments: Pretty Pink Posh, clear droplets
Thanks so much for dropping by today, it's been wonderful to have you visit.
And keep crafting!
