Finding Inspiration Friday
Retiform Technique



Hi Everyone,

Well I wasn't sure if I would get this blog posted today. My blog site that I used was having trouble today posting pictures, so I couldn't get it finished until now. I surely have been inspired by the Retiform technique that is taking Pinterest by storm. I had stamping class on Wednesday, and these are my projects.

I was inspired by a card that Randi Collins posted
on Pinterest. What I liked was the monochromatic theme
of the card. I combined So Many Shells and High Tide
for my project. I choose Island Indigo for my color.

This project was inspired by Cherie Criswell. I used Always
Artichoke, Crushed Curry, and Calypso Coral inks. These
three are a great combination. I also used Butterfly Basics
stamp set.
Our final project during class was this one using Real Read
and Smoky Slate. I used the new Musical Seasons
stamp set that is coming out in the new holiday catalog.
This technique is super easy and you can't do it wrong. All you need is a piece of printing paper or thin paper to use as a border and a sponge. It's important to use a thin paper because when you stamp an image, it will stamp right up to the line. Often, when you use a piece of card stock, you get a gap. 


There are just a couple more weeks before the new Holiday Catalog makes it's debut. If you would like to get a copy, I'd be happy to send one out to you. Simply ask.
