Retiform Blog Hop

Hello everyone! Are you ready for another creative inspiration blog hop?

TAC™ is sponsoring a Blog Hop where our projects must be done using the Retiform technique. When I first heard of this hop a couple of months ago I had to do a google search to find out about this retiform technique. SplitCoast stampers had a lot of information on it, too. What is it? Well, it has to do with masking and multi-stamping! It's been around awhile, but it's new to me! Here is my creation using this fun technique!


All stamps are from The Angel Company, Fly Fairy, Fanciful Vintage and Vintage backgrounds. The fairy is colored with Copic markers and the wings are cut out and popped up with foam tape. I painted on a bit of stickles to get some sparkly bling on her wings. Ended up putting a small posy on her hat as well.

Yes, those are paper doilies in the back ground - I cut two apart in order to make them stretch and fit behind the nestie. Memento ink used for all the black stamping and the different colors are done with distress inks and a sponge applicator.

Check out all the great projects below featuring this great technique! Thanks for dropping by!
