PPA83 Challenge

I thought I would try my hand at the color challenge at Pals Paper Arts. I saw a card similar to this on a blog  but I can't remember who. It is a spin on the retiform technique. Thuis is my first try at this technique.

Stamps: Because I Care,Bliss, Very Vintage wheel
Ink: Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze
Paper:Soft Suede, Crumb Cake, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Antique brads (117273), Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon (122331)

Rubber Inkspirations Tips:

  • Use sticky Sticky notes so they stay put while you ink the edges, mine were not very sticky & kept slipping.
  • Try to sponge grid edges evenly, so they have the same color value.
  • Using piercing tool to make hole for the brad.
