I posted my retiform card in my gallery. I did a few extra cards up for holiday giving, so decided to make one or two with this technique. Gina, I had so much fun! Now I best get to work and put my stamping things away again and think about the evening meal!

I did this years ago when I was a designer for another stamp company. Thanks for the reminder. Maybe before I put my inks away will give it a try again. And, it is so much easier now with newer tools, so this should be fantastic fun!

I don't know how to download a picture or link to this spot to show my first retiform, Gina.  I really like what you did in this video though even more.  Thanks!
