Technique Hop - Ghosting

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop. This month we are showing examples of Ghosting, as seen in the Close To My Heart 2011 Autumn/Winter Idea Book on page 45. If you've come from Michelle's blog, your heading in the right direction. Click here to see a list of all participants in this hop.

In this scrapbook layout I used the Wonderland paper from CTMH. The stamped image is from the Snow Flurries stamp set. I stamped the snowy flourish with Versamark Ink then sprinkled clear detail embossing powder over the image. After setting the embossing powder with a heat tool, I sponged Twilight Ink over the area. The embossed image resists the Twilight ink and creates a negative image. After that I used a clean white piece of copy paper and covered the embossed/sponged area, and then pressed a hot iron on top to remove the shine of the set embossing powder and leave behind a white matte finish.

Thanks for looking, now hop on over to Debi's blog for more artwork featuring Ghosting.

Have a memorable day,
