SIP Challenge #122

Hello all,

Sharing the card I have made for the Stamp, Ink and Paper Blog Challenge #122 – Washi Tape.

For this card I tried the “Retiform” technique that designer, Hetty featured on the Club Scrap Blog (http://clubscrap.com/1017-technique-retiform/) .   This technique is a process of masking off and shading different areas to create cool geometric patterns  (see the link above for Hetty’s instructions).

After I created a Retiform style background I used Distress Oxide ink to age and distress the panel.  I then stamped a saying and flower image in black ink.  Finally, I added some Washi tape to the left middle of the focal panel and additionally embellished with a few brads.  The panel was then adhered to a card base.
