CAS Mix Up October challenge third try with Ghosting!

I think this is my favorite of the ghosting techniques.
I chose a darker pink card stock and placed the same snowflake stencil (echo park # 2 snowflake) on the paper.
Using a pouncing motion, I added white pigment ink to the paper...then I lifted off the stencil and dried it with a heating tool.
I laid the stencil back on the paper, but moved it slightly down and to the right, then I used the same color ink as the color of the paper and pounced the color onto the paper.
When I removed the stencil it gave the coolest effect.  
 Go HERE to check out this lasts for the whole you have until the 24th to enter...Loll has great videos to watch and they are listed on this site!
