Ghostly Paisley Petals


My goodness, it's friday again!  And I'm back with another card as Guest Designer at The Friday Mashup.

Here's the challenge for this week -



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".

For my card, I loved the white space on the tag in the sketch so decided to leave my tag white.  I mounted it onto Concord Crush, same as the card base.  Added a strip of Lucky Limeade punched with the Scallop Edge Border Punch. The ribbon is a little Old Olive knotted.  Just For You is from Teeny Tiny Wishes and is stamped in white onto Concord Crush punched out with the Modern Label Punch

My big flower is from Paisley Petals.  I stamped it in Versamark onto some Glossy Paper.  Then sponged Concord Crush into the middle adding Lucky Limeade to the outside edges.   I fussy cut it out and added a brad from Antique Brads and attached it with a Dimensional slightly rounding in the petals.  The sponging gives the whole effect a soft look.

To make the background panel, I again used Glossy Paper and stamped another image from Paisley Petals in Versamark.  This time I used a Brayer to apply Lucky Limeade ink all over it.  You can see the difference when using this method.  The images and ink are 
much more vibrant. This was then matted onto a Whisper White layer. 

I hope you decide to join in this week and have a go at the ghosting technique.  It's great fun to see the images magically appear!
