A New Technique

Hi All,

Hope your week is getting off to a good start.  Mine got off pretty good, I got to play all day Sunday so I finished up some old projects started many months ago - made a gift bag and card for baby shower, finished a gift bag for Christmas (for next year), and made a card using a new technique I just saw from StampTV called Retiform . Some of you might have tried it before but when I saw this I had to try it. It gives just an awesome look to your card. So click here and it will take you to the video.

So here is my card, hope you like it. :D

***You will need post-it Notes for this technique ****

Paper: Recollections black, grey and yellow
Ink: Momento Tuxedo Black; SU White craft ink
Stamps: TE - Bless Your Nest; SNS - Gone Fishin; SU - Elegant Greetings

3GirlsJamChallenge- January 2014 - Anything Goes w/Ribbon

CraftAScene - Challenge Make Your Own Theme (For this challenge I chose Bless Your Nest stamp because the card is my MIL Birthday and she loves the birds that live around her home. She talks about how she bird watches all time and loves to hear them in mornings while she sits on her porch having coffee. It reminded of her and so this was also my inspiration for creating this card with this scenic stamp set by Talyored Expressions)
