I selected to feature the adorable stamp set called Deer Friends.  It's a great little set that is perfect for coloring and includes three cute little critters, some leafy elements, some woodsy items and a mixture of words with fun fonts!  

I created this adorable little gift bag for a friend.  The glassine bag looks awesome against the metallic shine of the Rinea foil, don't you think?  Let me quickly share how I created my little giftie!  

I first rubbed the Ghost Ink over the edge of the Rinea foil.  I used the Teal/Gold foil from the Peacock Variety Pack.  I let it air dry for about a minute or so and then took a dry paper towel and rubbed the teal color off.  This ink works wonders and using it always reminds me of when I remove my fingernail polish with fingernail polish remover!  HA HA!  It has no scent- so that is a perk!  
So after I rubbed off the blue, I stamped the leafy vine onto the Ghost pad and stamped directly over the paper.  I wanted to create a layered effect.  After that, I stamped the same image over that with black ink.  
The next step was to score about a half inch space from the bottom of the foil and used my scissors to fringe the bottom.  I wanted my foil to have a fringed look to give added texture as well as help the gold color on the back peek through!  

I attached the foil panel to a piece of white cardstock for extra "sturdy" support and then attached it to the glassine bag.  
I stamped and colored the little fox using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and my Copic markers then cut it out.  I added a little heart to his chest because I though he needed it.  :)  Next, I tied some orange and teal Hemptique twine around the bag.  
Finally, I stamped the sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock cut into a pennant shape with Memento Black ink and VersaClair ink.  I popped the fox and the tag onto the bag with foam squares and filled up my gift bag with some crinkle paper and a new pad of Rinea Ghost Ink.  Now, I have a sweet treat to gift a friend!  Please head on over to Angie's blog to see her newest creation!

    1. Hi Sharti! This Ghost Ink works especially well with Rinea Foil and removes the color from the metal quickly and easily. I'm going to try it with other medium to see how it reacts. It's kind-of like fingernail polish remover ...on paper! LOL
