HERON Earth Did I Forget Your Birthday?

 That's the blurb I used on the cover of a greeting card, shown below.

Using a pink and blue monoprint as my background, I made a heron print with a Sofft Sponge, Payne's Gray acrylic paint and my 6"X6" stencil Heron.


While the stencil was still wet with acrylic paint all around the edges of the heron shape, I turned the stencil over, placed it on a sheet of foreign newsprint, and rubbed it with the heel of my hand.  That made the ghost print you see below:

Above:  this ghost print will be used on a collage or on another greeting card cover.
