MCT: Try Me Tuesday!

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Tuesday!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is Try Me Tuesday!
The technique that we are trying today is Ghost Stamping. 
In case you don't know (like I didn't), Ghost Stamping is when you stamp your images in white and then stamp again but slightly offset so that some of the white shows through. 

Here is the card that I created for this Try Me Tuesday:

For my card, I stamped the flowers from the Fun Pockets set, first in white and then again in black. I then proceeded to color them in with some markers. I used the Curly Label die and the Stitched Curly Label Die for my sentiment and then I used some white embossing powder to make my sentiment from the It's All About You set pop off of the kraft cardstock. 

This was the first time that I tried this technique and I love it!!
It creates such a cool effect! I really like how some of the white peeks around the flower as well as inside the petals and leaves. 

Be sure to stop by the My Creative Time blog to see all the fabulous Ghost Stamping techniques that my wonderful DT sisters created.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a fabulous crafty day!
