Trying Something New!

Over at The Mod Squad
I found this amazingly different technique
that I just had to try.
It is called Retiform Technique and was so much fun.
My friend Donna is hosting and after seeing her cards
I decided since I had never done this before
I would attempt to case her card.
Details Here
Here is how and the products I used -
Coloured card stock as my base and backing.
I then got out my sticky notes and started inking
using Memento Peanut Brittle/Sweet Plum &
Tim Holtz Milled Lavender/Cracked Pistachio
I did miss a few bits with the masking and thought of
adding a pen mark to cover but was worried
I would mess it up.
I got out my stamps
Shenanigans/Wonderful Words from
and Inspired by Stamping Hello/Trendy Circle Sentiments
and embossed them in colours to match.
I decided to go with just sentiments as they say it all.
Added a bit of spritzing to finish.
I can now say I have tried a new technique.
Thanks for popping in

I love this. Great idea to emboss the sentiments to match the colors.

This came out beautifully! I LOVE the colors you used and the wordy stamps too. What a pretty birthday card this is! I like the little bit of white around some of the edges, it hi-lights them and makes them POP all the more! WOW!!! Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Mod Squad Challenge Donna, Challenge Host.
