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.

Welcome to my blog!  I am thrilled to celebrate World Card Making Day by participating in OWH’s bloghop!  My card is based on Sketch 96.  I like how the tree branch of my card mimics the third strip to the right.

The owl on this thank you card was made with the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge, and the sentiment is from Scrappy Mom’s “Owl Occasions.”   Papers are from my scrap box and ended up going together nicely, I think.  Thanks for stopping by!
