Color Coordinates with Shari Carroll: Ghost Images

I’m having fun with the Pantone Color of the year 2019 LIVING CORAL. It’s a beautiful shade that sits right dab in the middle of pink and orange. To celebrate this color I’ve come up with a Color Coordinates using Simon Says Stamp inks.

I’ve stamped a panel of white cardstock with the Simon Damask Background Cling using Simon Says Stamp white ink. Once it had a chance to dry, I cut the panel up into strips of various sizes. This is where the cool part comes in. I colored each of the strips with my ink colors using a blending tool. The image of the Damask leaves a ghosting effect with the inks.

I varied how dark I colored the strips so I could get lighter and darker tones of the inks. I used the Simon Ornate Love stamp set where I white embossed the letters LOVE and inked up each of those with the same color inks. I adhered some of the strips flush onto the card base and some are lifted up with foam tape.  I wrapped the card with Silver Metallic thread trying it in a bow. I pulled the bow through the “O” and place the rest of the letters onto the strips. To finish it up, I added a few Studio Katia clear drops.

  1. Your card is just fabulous Shari! I love, love, love the coral color you used and the fog, just adds to the impact on it. Thanks for sharing with us.

  2. I love the coral color and the fog is such a nice compliment to it! I’m going to have to try the ghosting technique; it’s really pretty. Beautiful card!
