Where books and stamps collide!

It's time for another mini Virtual Stamp Night! There are five challenges this round, all connected to books and reading, and they run through July 4! I hope you'll join us. You can find all the details HERE! (Or ask me any questions on this post!)
Andrea challenged us to be "ghost writers" and use the ghosting technique, also known as Versamark resist, on our cards. I have been itching to get myself out of my color rut (have you noticed the pink, pomegranate and brown overload in my posts lately?) so I tried a new, fresh combination of cameo coral, river rock and white. I really like how it turned out.
For the ghosting, I stamped the flower from One of a Kind in versamark on glossy paper and let it dry for a few minutes. Then I brayered over the entire piece with cameo coral ink. The ghosting shows up better in real life, but was hard to capture in the photograph.
Supplies:
Stamps: One of a Kind, Sage Advice
Ink: versamark, coral, river rock
Paper: glossy white, whisper white, coral, river rock
Accessories: ticket punch, ribbon, brayer, brads, dimensionals.
