Just Us Girls #110 - Ghosting Technique



Hello JUGs fans! Lisa here with a new technique challenge brought to you by Just Us Girls. This is a favorite of mine. It's called "ghosting" and I learned this technique at a Wendy Vecchi class last year. There's a link to the technique on Splitcoast Stampers here. But instead of using Versamark ink, try using a white pigment ink, heat setting it before applying ink over it. Then use darker inks to make the image appear as a "ghost". That's the way I learned the technique and the results are very cool!

Let's see what the girls have done with this technique.

I ALWAYS have the same problem, Christine! It's not that you aren't loved - even with the English translation, I can never seem to comment on your wonderful work! SORRY! Your card IS lovely! Hope you see this!
