Technique Tuesday-Ghosting

WELCOME to our Technique Blog Hop!! This month there are 12 of us highlighting "Ghosting Technique" as shown on page 45 of the
  Autumn/Winter 2011 Idea Book under Tips and
Techniques. This blog 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 Debi Barber's blog.While there you will 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 Wendy's blog, then you are on the right track!

Today I made a 4x4 card using this technique with  snowflakes.

Step 1, Stamp image using Versa Mark ink. In this case, I stamped the snowflakes.Sprinkle clear embossing powder over image, tap of excess, and heat with a craft heater.

Step 2. Sponge around image with contrasting ink (Twilight, and Pacifica) to creat a negative image.

Step 3. Place clean piece of paper over embossed image. Heat with iron to transfer embossing powder to scrap paper to remove the shine of the embossing powder for a matte finish.

Attach this strip of snowflakes to a small strip of contrasting paper
and assemble your card.
The photo below shows the sizes I used and supplies. I also used
My Acrylix stamp set D1480 Snowflakes, Wonderland B&T paper and Believe workshop on The Go Stamp set.
