One seed can start a garden, one candle can light a room, one step can begin a journey, one conversation can start a friendship, one smile from a handmade card can lift one's SPIRIT!

Ghost stamping

Jennifer McGuire demonstrated something she calls Ghost Stamping HERE and Darlene DeVries also demonstrated it HERE .  I really liked the looks of that technique and finally tried it out myself. 

I used the same technique on both cards.  The top one was stamped with color box red ink and I hand drew the lines around the card.  The second card was stamped with terra cotta tile and I did a little masking with that technique.  The stamp is PTI Flower Garden, the sentiments are Hero Arts.  the white ink is colorbox "frost white" pigment ink...I did heat dry it after each stamping to be sure the white dried and did not smear.
