Try Me Tuesday ~ Ghost Stamping

Happy Tuesday!  It's Try Me Tuesday over at My Creative Time.
Today we are doing "Ghost Stamping" technique.  I've never done this before and researching all about it, I found a couple of different ways you can do it.  One way is to stamp your image with white ink and once dry, stamp same image over top with a color and offset just a tad so you have a white "ghost" of a shadow behind color.  Another way to do this technique is to stamp your image with white ink on white paper and once dry, rub a color over the stamped image.  This is the technique I tried as I just couldn't get a stamped image right doing the other technique.  The technique I did actually makes a dry embossed look to me but love how it gives a whole new way to use your stamps!!

Here is a close up showing how you can see the stamped images once colored with ink.  I just rubbed across the white stamped images with a sponge dauber to bring out the design.

I like the look this way gives too. Very subtle and soft. I like the burlap stamping and inking too...it really brings out the pretty flower. Great job on your card and technique.
