It's a Glittering Ghost!

>> Wednesday, October 20, 2010


Have you ever sat down to stamp and had your mind be completely empty?? That happened to me last night - in a good way!! I really had no thoughts on what I wanted to do, which stamps I wanted to use or even what colors I wanted to use. It was kind of fun!

When I sat down, the first thing I noticed was all the dirty, inky stamps from the last time I stamped ;) as I started to clean up a little I picked up Spencer the Not so Spooky Spirit 408D and well, it started me down the path!

This is a fun and quick background to stamp because you don't have to mask, but the coloring takes a little while. Unfortunately when I was done coloring I was faced with a few streaks. That led me to the cover up. I dabbed my clear versamark stamp pad over the entire background, then poured on a mixture of 1/2 clear embossing powder and 1/2 ultrafine white glitter. A little heat setting and I had one sparkily background! Too sparkily to cover up! Instead of adding a greeting like I normally would have , I tied on a simple ribbon with a couple of shrinky dink ghosts I had made for a different card that they just didn't work on (I did some cleaning after all!) and attached it all to a folded black card.

It was fun just letting one thing lead me to another!

Happy Stamping!

How cool! I love the purple background! I must say great minds think alike! I created a similar card that you'll see very soon. I still need to try that shrink technique too-those little ghosts are the perfect embellishment!
