Try-it Tuesday: Ghosting

As part of my goal for ‘Blogtoberfest’ I am trying to have a schedule for the week. So far, I have H2H Mondays, try-it Tuesdays, 3-for Thursday, and Family Friday.

10-25 try it copy

For this Halloween card I tried out the ghosting technique.  First step is to stamp your image with VersaMark embossing ink, then cover your wet image with clear embossing powder.  Shake off excess, then use your heat gun to melt the embossing. 

When your embossing is cool, use a sponge or dauber and ink all around your images. The ink won’t stay on the embossing so get in there and ink away!

Next you will need an iron. Warm it to the hottest setting. When it is ready, place a scrap piece of paper over your embossed images. Iron over the top. (I used a towel as a buffer.) The embossing will melt away, and end up on your scrap paper.

And, there you have it! A negative image. Cool huh?

So, give it a try!

Happy Crafting Everyone!
