Missing You Ghost Ship

I was playing around with some ghosting techniques I saw on YouTube this past weekend.  I think they would do a lot better with glossy cardstock, but couldn't find mine and Stampin' Up! doesn't sell it anymore, so I used Whisper White cardstock.  For the background, I used White Craft Ink with Pear Pizzazz ink brayered over it.  I let the craft ink dry for a long time and even heat set it, but it still reacted with the Pear Pizzazz I used over it.  I wasn't really happy with it.  I used my aqua painter to splash some water over it.  I liked the spots it left behind.  For the image, I used a retired stamp set that I love (Schooner).  With this one I used Versimark and brayered over it with Island Indigo.  The image showed up really faint.  Made me think of missing someone, which is why this is a Missing You card.   I thought this button stamp from the retired set Button Button went great.  I layered the card front on a card base of Marina Mist.  I think for my next ghosting technique I will try is using clear embossing powder and sponging around on the cardstock.
