FM55 Ghostly Sketch

Rita is bringing us a ghostly challenge today at the Friday Mashup.

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge :
  1. Make a project using the " Sketch ".
  2. Or Make a project using the " Ghosting (aka VersaMark Resist) Technique".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a project using the " Sketch & the Ghosting Technique".

Phew, this one took some thought. I just couldn't decide on an image that I liked. Do I use the ghosting technique on the main image or the background? Decisions, decisions...

I also played along with the Stampin' Celebration challenge. So glad to see Krystal and her team back again! She puts together such beautiful collage pictures!

The ghosting image is Bella Toile background. I stamped in Versamark, let it dry for a while, then brayered with Blushing Bride. I also did a bunch of sponging to match the vintage look of Bella Toile.

This is also one of the projects we did at the recent Techniques Class.

Stamps: Simply Soft, Bella Toile BG, Kind & Caring Thoughts; Paper: Pear Pizzazz, Soft Suede, Whisper White, Glossy White, Blushing Bride DSP; Ink: Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride, Crumb Cake, Stazon, Versamark; Accessories: Pearl jewels, Blushing Bride stitched poly ribbon, Scallop Edge border punch, Modern Label punch, Brayer, Sponge, Blender pen, Beautiful Wings embosslit, Big Shot, Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by!
