Technique Tuesday ... Ghosting Technique

Today's technique is the Ghosting Technique which has been around for a long time but is still one of my favorites for creating a background.

 Here's what you will need:
  • Glossy Cardstock
  • VersaMark Ink
  • Classic Ink - I used Pool Party
  • Sponge
  • Stamp Set - I used By The Seashore

 Stamp images onto your glossy cardstock using the VersaMark ink.  Let it set for about 5 minutes to allow the VersaMark ink to dry a little bit.
 Take your sponge and ink and cover the entire cardstock with it.  As you pass over the stamped images, you will begin to see them show up in white.
 Here's my finished piece.  I used a very light ink but if you use a darker ink, the images will stand out even further.
Here's the card I made using this technique.  A very simple monochromatic card but very pretty!
