The Craft's Meow September Blog Hop

Hello friends!  Today the The Craft's Meow DT is having an "Anything Goes" themed blog hop.
I used the stamp set Chalkboard Birthday and incorporated the ghosting technique using Distress inks and water.
A white cardstock panel was sponged generously using Distress inks. Once I was satisfied with the coverage, I laid a stencil from Judikins and misted the panel with water. Simply set aside and the pattern will appear as it drives (you can speed this up with a heat gun). 
Below is step by step of "how-to" from a blog post I had on the TCM Blog yesterday.

First I sponged some Distress inks onto a white cardstock panel using distress inks and gathered a stencil and water spritzer.
Place the stencil on the inked cardstock panel and spray the panel with water.
Gently roll a paper towel roll over the stencil/panel to absorb the water.
Lift the stencil and finish the card as desired. I added one of the sentiments from Chalkboard Birthday

Here is The Craft's Meow stamp sets I used on my cards:
