Trying out a new (to me) technique

Hello there!

Here's a simple card I made to try out a technique called "Ghosting".


Basically, this entails stamping your image in Versamark and brayering straight over it. There is no need to wait for the Versamark to dry or to heat set it in any way. It's so simple and I love the effect it gives.

I used Versamark Dazzle "Frost" and a Big and Juicy "Soothing Sunset" inkpad with a Speedball brayer. The image is a stamp by Magenta called "Lovely Meadow" and the sentiment is from an SU! set called "Oval All".

See you soon.
