Earlier today I watched Jennifer McGuire's video "Ghost Stamping on Kraft". You can watch it at this link
I was intrigued by the technique and wanted to give it a try. I don't have the ink pads that she used, but I do have the Color Box Frost White Pigment Stamp Pad that she mentioned and I have a variey of dye ink pads from Memento. I like the stamp set that Jennifer used, but I don't have it so I decided to use the "Petals & Stems" clear stamp set from Verve Stamps along with a tiny flower from Lawn Fawn's "Flutter By" clear stamp set, and a sentiment stamp from Hero Arts "Sending Smiles" clear stamp set.
If you are familiar with my blog you know that I tend to use patterned paper on most of my cards instead of stamping directly onto a blank card, but as I said earlier in this post I wanted to give ghost stamping a try. I wasn't especially excited about my card when I first finished it, but then I added faux stitching around the edges and was much happier. I added some jewels to the tiny blossoms I stamped. You'll notice that my sentiment could be just a little lower on the left...but...it's okay for this first try.
I'm heading to bed early tonight. One of the children at school has sneezed all over me too often lately and I need to fight off yet another cold.
Have a nice night!
