A Ghostly Time with Just Us Girls

Good Morning!
Bet you thought this was going to be a Halloween card when you read the title?!  Nope!  It's our technique challenge over at Just Us Girls this week and our hostest with the mostest is the one and only Lisa!  She is challenging us with the ghosting technique which a tutorial can be found here if you decide to have a go at it.  

I used a Tim Holt'z background script which I originally was going to use the piece I cut out of the middle but I couldn't get it to work into something I liked.  So... I ended up using the frame and cutting out an image from Graphic 45's Gentlemen collection that I inked up and put on pop-ups in the center of the cutout.  I used Tim Holtz's distress ink in Vintage Photo I like the look I got with this! I hope you get a chance to play along with JUGS this week!  I can't wait to pop by and see what you come up with! 

Check out what the rest of the Girls have created along with our November Guest Designer Kim O'Connell!
