Technique #1 Ghosting

I really don't know if anyone is looking at my blog, but I'm going to pretend that you're there. Like I said in my last post I am going to try some new techniques from a book I just got from CTMH. I'm loving this "Ghosting" technique. So what you do is heat emboss an image onto a card then distress it with some ink. Now you get a white piece of cardstock to put over the image and iron it. Yes, I said iron it. When you lift the white paper you'll see that the image has transfered onto it, thus creating a "Ghost" look.
Very cool. This card has a few mistakes on it, but I like it.
I'm not a sewer so I stamped a stitched look from a CTMH stamp set. I know it's all the rage right now, but I just hate sewing. I do love stamping though.
If you're out there please leave me a comment so I know. I'd love to hear from y'all. Happy crafting......
