Hey blog friends! I've got a new card to share with you today. It's time for PTI Make it Monday #49: Ghost Masking. I've never heard of this technique before, so I was very curious as I watched Betsy Veldman demonstrate how to do this technique (and her card is just beautiful)! It's actually very simple. If you haven't already, you can check it out here.
I used two stamp sets: Mat Stack 2 Collection (all the black areas on the top panel), and Giga Guide Lines (tealish color images). Hopefully you can see in the pic that the teal stamps inside the circle are lighter, or "ghosted", compared to the area outside the circle. This way, the sentiment is not overpowered by the pattern behind it! I absolutely LOVE how this card turned out! What about you? What do you think?! I would love to hear your feedback.
Thanks for stopping by for a visit!!
