Retiform Blog Hop

Welcome to another Blog Hop with The Angel Company! This hop is focusing on a technique called Retiform.
I honestly had no idea what that was, until I watched THIS cool video
by Heather on how to do this technique.
I have to say I was not too sure about this, not really my style right. But I thought give it a try and see what happens....

So this is my very first attempt at this technique, it's all about masking and inking. Very fun actually, it's good to try out new things! And come to find out you can add your own style into this technique! For this card I used "Cheers to You", a wonderful set for St. Patrick's Day and many other occasions !

This is my second attempt, a little different look, same stamp set and inks as the first, just a few layers. I hope you will check out the rest of the beautiful creations on this blog hop, and leave a little love along the way with a comment or two!

Go here to join in the hop!

Thanks for stopping by, hope that you are having a wonderful weekend!

You know, I was going to use this set because I love it and haven't used it yet...but I couldn't figure out how to color the horseshoes, beer stein, etc. Thanks for helping me over the hurdle so I can start using this set. Loved your cards.
