Finding my love of ghosting again

Hi guys,

WOW! I have been quiet. Bad bad blogger!!! Been very busy with getting back to fulltime work. I started a new role at the end of January. Anywho I'm very excited cos I have not one but 2 cards to share with you. Was going to do it over two seperate posts but I need to get them in for a challenge. This week at Friday Mashup the challenge was to use the ghosting technique or use the current sketch of mash up both.

I really love the ghosting technique. Haven't used it in ages. So I jumped at the chance to create something. I originally made this card and after finishing it I went through the cards already submitted and found someone else had submitted a card just like mine. Different colours but similar concept. I'm taking it as good taste, hehehe. Anyway I thought I'd make a second card since I really enjoyed rekindling my ghosting love. Heres the first card I made

Stamp Set: French Foliage, Just Believe
Ink: Pool Party, Versamark, Black Stazon, Lucky Limeade, Island Indigo
Cardstock: Gloss white, Lucky Limeade, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Basic Black
Accessories: Sponges, Satin Black Ribbon, Dimensionals, Butterfly Dye

So the second card... My brother proposed to his girlfriend just before Christmas and they are having an engagement party on Friday so I made this card (using ghosting, not the sketch) for them to say congrats. I used ghosting on the circle as well as the baha background with the medallion. I am really happy with how it turned out. I'd love to hear your thoughts on it.

Stamp Set: Charming, Medallion, Tiny Tags, Northern Hearts
Ink: Real Red, Pretty in Pink, Baha Breeze, Versamark, StazOn,
Cardstock: Regal Rose, Baha Breeze, Pink Pirouette, Pink Pirouette Prints DSP, Gloss White
Accessories: Sponges, 2 1/2" circle punch, Pink hearts punch, Lace border punch, baha breeze seam binding, tiny tag punch 

Hope you enjoyed having a look. Hopefully I'll be able to get back into blogging more regularly.
Have a great day!

Both are beautiful cards. Love the black on the first. It makes the other colours pop. The second is very elegant. Love the use of the medallion in the background. x
