these ghosts...

I just cannot stop using this ghost from Tim Holtz!
This time I used hm to make a stencil.
The base card is white card stock.
There is a strip of patterned paper from DCWV “Ghost Stories” paper pad.
Using a piece of acetate I die cut the Ghost from Tim Holtz “Frightful Things” keeping the inside piece.
With Hero Arts “Unicorn” ink I sponged in the ghost.
Once dry I used the ghost image itself to sponge in the eyes and mouth with Distress ink black soot.
To finish I stamped the sentiment from Tim Holtz “Life Of the Party” with Gina K amalgam ink.
