World Card Making Day 2015 – Ghost Stamping

Ghost Stamping

Ghost Stamping

Back for another year of World Card Making Day!  Today’s cards feature a stamping technique called ghost stamping.   An image is first stamped with white pigment ink and allowed to dry, and then the same image is stamped slightly offset with a dye ink.  This process really adds some dimension and interest.

I tried various Colors of dye Ink and added a white gel pen outline to define the edges of the card.

Ghost Stamping – developing the card

I tried various colors of dye inks and found that some brands definitely work better than others.  I then added a white gel pen outline to define the edges of the card.
