My title for this blog entry makes me laugh because I am SO not inspired as you know but the “Inspired” comes from the stamps I used called “Inspired by Nature” which I just love, It is a stamp set that is SO easy to use and no matter what you do it looks ok. In an effort to get inspired and find my missing mojo I pulled out some old Technique notes and found notes on Ghosting and thought I would give it a go. It was a fun technique as all you do is brayer ink over Vellum and while the ink is wet stamp a “dry” bold image on the inked up Vellum and the image picks up the ink and creates this lovely and soft reversed image. It’s a great way to use up some vellum because I think every Card marker and even Scrapbookers have lots of vellum in their stash that is hardly used.
I have attached a little Printed Paper and ribbon on the main image panel, The background is just the Grass image from the Inspired by Nature stamp set which I have clear embossed to add a little pop.
