Krafty Chicks Challenge #506

It is "Stamp Act" week at Krafty Chicks 
and I used a lot of stamps on my card.
This all came about when my friend Marcia posted a link to GinaK's YouTube video about retiform.  I had never tried this technique but after seeing it I thought it would be fun to try.  I'm not going to try to explain it.  If you're interested please check out the video.

I thought I'd try again with different colors and this is what I came up with.  I'm not sure about those gray butterflies but they do match the PTI sentiment.
I forgot to cut my panels down before I stamped them so I just trimmed a little bit to have a border, kraft on the first one and slate on the second.

I appreciate you dropping by.  Have a great day!

  1. Oh Bobby...both of these turned out BEAUTIFUL!! Kind of an addicting technique isn't it?! Love your color choices and stamps, and your first one almost has a puffy quilted look to it! It's always fun to try something new and I'm so glad you gave this technique a try! Hugs. :0)
