Happy Little Stampers CAS Challenge - Ghosting
Well, my goodness, gracious me, yet another month has whizzed by, so fast I very nearly missed it! This means we have another fun challenge over at the Happy Little Stampers CAS blog. This month it is Ghosting . . . no, not the spooky kind . . . stay tuned and I'll explain, but first, you need to pop on over to HLS and check out the videos there explaining this technique and the other design team members fabulous examples.
As always, HLS is sponsoring this challenge from the HLS shop.
So, without further ado, here is my card and the explanation will be below for those interested.
First, I took a white card base, a grey, slightly textured panel smaller than the card front, and a strip of navy blue card-stock.
The first thing I did was to stamp the flower silhouette in white pigment ink and let it dry, then I stamped it again in navy ink, just a little offset and let that dry. Whilst that was drying, I took a piece of white card-stock and stamped the sentiment in navy and adhered a small strip of navy card-stock on to the bottom of the sentiment piece to tie it in and adhered foam tape to the back.
The nest step was to mount a strip of navy card-stock to the back of the focal panel an mount the whole thing up on fun foam to the card base and the sentiment strip to finish.
Now it is your turn and I can't wait to see what you come up with!
