Ghosting is fun and easy to do. Check out my video tutorial on Ghosting.
The stencil I used above is VERY open, so I wanted to create a ghost of the outline of the leaves. I sponged my card front randomly with turquoise and green inks. Then I sprayed the back of the stencil with water first, layed it on the card front, pressed down and removed. Let the water sit for about 10 seconds to work it's way into the sponged colours, and then blotted with a paper towel. Voila!! This combines Stencil Monoprint with Ghosting. :)
This month we are excited to have Mac Mable (The Sweetest of Peas) are our Guest Designer. Mac won the CAS Mix Up August Challenge - Sprays with this GORGEOUS CARD. Welcome Mac!
Please check out our challenge blog to see Mac's Ghosting card, along with the rest of the Design Team cards.
I hope you'll give Ghosting a try and come join us at the CAS Mix Up challenge with your CAS (Clean and Simple) mixed media cards. We'd love to see you in the gallery.
As always, the challenge is open until the 24th of the month.
