MIM #49- Ghost Masking


This weeks MIM was a really easy, but super neat effect technique called ghost masking. I had to resist using Rosie Posie for my first try on this and tried to use another unloved set. So I pulled out PTI's Life set and am really happy I did! I have a huge weakness for silhouette floral images and I really love how this turned out. I kept it compeltely one layer and pulled out my sewing machine to add a bit of texture. I don't have the label basics set so this frame was the closest thing I had that would work. I did have to trim down my positive die cut a bit so that there wouldn't be a line between the full strength ink and the second generation stamping.  Now I think I want Label Basics! Hope you like my take on this challenge, I really love how it adds so much depth to a one layer card. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh, Leah--this is absolutely gorgeous. Life was a great set choice. You are inspiring me to pull out Larger than Life, which I had completely forgotten about.
