My DH thought it would be fun to give me a challenge to use this stamp set and paper collection to make a card. I had it on my desk to make a card and when I saw Tanya's card I was ready to go for meeting his challenge to me.

I stamped the lilies twice and colored one in blue and purple and one in white.

WT816 - Spooked. Ghosting technique using white ink/black/colour and/or also alcohol inks/stamps. Also link to SCS Versamark ghosting technique. Will suggest cobwebs, brooms, witches, fairies but anything goes.

I used the ghosting technique on both of these pet sympathy cards. On the first card I used paw prints over the rainbow colors and the second card I used a tree.
