Ghosting Technique Blog Hop

Welcome to our Technique Blog Hop! This month there are eleven of us highlighting the "Ghosting Technique" as shown on page 45  in the Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book. 
This blog hop is a great big circle so you can start wherever you want and continue through to see all the fabulous artwork incorporating this technique. If you would like to start from the beginning, please visit this link. While there, you will also find a listing of all participants and their blog addresses if you should get lost or want to reference a blog along the way. Let’s get started!

If you are coming from Rachel's Blog, you are on the right track! 
I used the adorable, "Down by the Sea" stamp set (C1451) to highlight this technique.  I have had it since the summertime and had yet to use it. I  loved the images on it - my dream job would be to work with ocean life - so I just had to have it!  It was fun to break it out of the envelope and smell it (lol).  (If you haven't smelled a brand new stamp set from CTMH you are missing out!)

I incorported the Dreamin' paper packet, wanting to use the Pacifica color to give the idea of an "ocean".  The "floral" b&t paper also lent itself to look like creative vegetation on the ocean floor.  In any case, I thought it was a fun use of this stamp set.

It was super easy to do this technique, embossing with the Clear Detail Embossing Powder and applying Pacific with a Sponge Dauber.  I am looking forward to seeing the rest of the creative artwork using this technique.

Happy hoppin' as you make your way to Judy Faye's Blog!  Feel free to leave a comment.  I would love to hear from you!
