The Ghost of Autumn

capture-decran-2016-10-04-a-12-39-06The month of October on the CAS Mix Up Card Challenge is GHOSTING! So I grabbed my Gelli Plate and starting mixing Tombow brush makers of ocher and orange and came up with this coral colour.  To remove some colour from the plate, I stamped with an old stamp set of leaves.  This is how I got a ghost print.  While wet I brushed with Pearl-Ex for the shimmer.  I also added positive stamping with the same leaves and ink left from the Gelli Plate.  Then I added light modelling paste to the white card base to give a wonky frame effect.  I die-cut leaves in white felt, white vellum and white card stock.  I fastened these leaves with a white eyelet along with jewelry wire and beads, of course 😛   and tied a knot.  Since the base was already wonky, I did the same with the ghost print rectangle.  Love playing 😀

Hope you enjoy, happy card making HUGz Joannaimg_0959
