I liked the idea that Pool Party and Island Indigo are shades of each other, so I wanted to use one as a ghost of the other. I started with stamping the flower image in Island Indigo, then using a Stamp-a-majig, stamped the same image in Pool Party just a millimetre or two off the original. The effect is quite subtle but the Pool Party 'ghost' creates a kind of stereo-vision that adds some extra depth to the image. I added in a few little highlights with a white gel pen on both the flower and the butterfly.
The 'hello' is layered up for extra dimension. The butterfly has an Island Indigo shadow under him and is raised on a dimensional.
The ghost stamp is more visible in this close-up.
Earlier in the week, I'd seen beautiful card by Shawn de Oliveira, which was the CASE challenge at The Global Design Project. It reminded me of the beautiful Butterfly Basics set with its gorgeous and versatile flower image which lead to my choice of stamp for this card. I think that the mood of the cards is similar too. So I'm also entering this card The Global Design Project too.
