Family Challenge #4 - Let's try ghost stamping.

Even with their busy schedules I managed to talk the ladies into doing another Family Challenge. I chose what looks like an easy and fun technique. I saw this video by Jennifer McGuire on using what she calls ghost stamping so I wanted to give it a try.

I decided on a similar design as to that in the video, I played with this card for well over and hr :) so much for CAS.

I love buttons but I tend to make paper buttons rather that the real thing so when I saw this stamp set I knew I had to have it, I just have not used it as much as I should. I pretty sure we can all say that about large amount of our beloved stamps.

I stamped with Stampin’ Up! white craft ink then used Memento Lulu Lavender and Grape Jelly over top, I dug into my stash of embroidery thread for a coordinating colour. I stamped the sentiment in black.

Stop by Barb and Judy’s blogs to see how they have been inspired by this video.

Supplies: Natural white, purple and kraft card stock, Verve-Sunny Days, misc embroidery thread, pearls.
