Ghosting - Quite Cool!

Here is one done using the Ghosting technique. I'm not really good about trying new techniques. I prefer simple, add some fun ribbon or glitter or well placed brads and call it good. BUT, I have several stamp clubs that really desire learning new techniques. In February one of the gals wanted to learn Ghosting. I am glad she did! I love this technique.
First and foremost, please note you cannot purchase this stamp set any longer. This is Big Pieces, which was in the Winter Mini. (I'm sending out big telepathic vibes to Shelli beggin to have this set in the new catty).
To create this look you use glossy white cardstock. Stamp the circles with versa mark on the paper and then using your brayer you ink it up and brayer over the cardstock. The circles will begin appearing in white. Really neat!
To get the multi colored circle that is the focal point, just use Stampin' Up!'s incredible markers to color directly onto your stamp. Huff your hot breath on the stamp and off you go!

Very cool. Is there a way to do this without a brayer? Hmmm....might have to play a bit this weekend. ;) LorieR
