I’m the first to admit that I don’t know as much about cardmaking as I’d like. Which is one of the reasons I love Inspired by Stamping’s WHW Tutorials.
This week the tutorial comes from the very talented Shea Marshall, and is all about ‘ghosting’. As always, I encourage you to visit the above link and learn this wonderful technique.
The ghost effect you can see on this card was made using IBS Little Flowers, and the greeting is from their Big Wishes II set. Love them both!
I matted the focal image onto some black cardstock, and ran it through my guillotine, which has some fancy cutters.
Thanks for looking, and as always, if you want to comment, and the comment box isn’t showing, click the title of this post and it will magically appear!
Well done Cheryl! A great effort
Cheryl, this is a great card! I’ll have to learn more about ghosting!
Thanks Lindsay. I wanted something totally different, and loved the effect I got with the matting. I feel it gives the card a much more elegant look.
Thanks Gabi. Do give it a try. It was so easy, and the results are great.
WOW! I am so impressed! this is beautiful! Love the colors that you chose too! Great card Cheryl! Hugs, Joanna
Thanks so much, Joanna! I’ll be doing this again for sure.
Cheryl – you did a FABULOUS job with this technique! Love the classic colors of your card, and your “ghosts” turned out PERFECTLY! Thanks so much for playing along with IBS!

Thanks, Shea! And thank you for a fabulous tutorial!!
At first I was thinking it would be a Halloween card! LOL Ghost, and all, LOL But, hey, this is so cool. I’ve seen Dyan Reaveley do a “live action at CHA” bit with this technique, with her Dylusions Sprays…….it’s just lovely, and so versatile. Think of all the colors,and stamps, wow. Nice job, Cheryl…and, I watched the IBS tutorial. It’s a great look, and boy, that’s handy, right?
Hey Anna, it’s not a technique I’ve seen before, but I’ll certainly be using it again!
Glad you went and checked out the tutorial. Pretty cool, right?
