I’ve not tried ‘ghosting’ before, but after giving it a go for these challenges, I think I might be doing it a bit more often – saying that you do need to choose an appropriate stencil – I did dud out 3 times – LOL!
Ghosting is where you colour a watercolour panel using water soluble crayons, inks or paints – I sponged Catherine Pooler ink in Flirty Fuchsia. I laid my Tim Holtz ‘Scribbles’ stencil over the coloured panel and rubbed over it with a baby wipe to remove the colour – leaving a ‘ghost’ of the stencil image! You need to be a bit patient here and wait for the piece to dry fully to see the results – but it’s worth it!
So here are my elements for this card that follows the AAA Cards requirements: a sentiment, a stencil background, a die cut and a single matt panel and for the optional twist you could say this was for a fabulous friend!
Isn’t it pretty? Thanks for looking and have a great day.
