Hey there, Just Us Girls (JUGs) is having a technique challenge that I've never done before, so I thought I would give it a try. It's called Ghosting.
The caroler is from an Our Craft Lounge single called Sing with Joy. This stamp has a bunch of music notes and swirls all around it. Since I only wanted the caroler as my image, masks were cut out of blue painter's tape. With the tape in place, the stamp was inked. Before it was stamped, the tape was removed. Viola...only the section I wanted to use was stamped on the card stock! I love using painter's tape...it holds well, doesn't leave any residue when removed and it's way cheaper than removable tape!
With the card stock still in the die, the image was stamped with white pigment ink then heat set. Three shades of blue were sponged (lightest to darkest). Another caroler was stamped on white card stock, colored with Copic markers, cut out then popped up on foam. Seam binding was dyed with the medium blue, fastened with a brad then attached to the card with a Zots. Not an ideal location for the bow, but alas...fingerprints...need I say more? The music notes are from a border punch. I guess that's about it for this one.
