Springtime Smiles
It’s great to be able to get something on paper that you’ve been carrying around in your head for days (if not weeks). I’ve been dying to try the retiform technique with this new Easter Blossoms stamp set and today was the day!

I found this color combination on a PDF somebody shared on and thought it would work great with this technique. I needed at least one dark color for my silhouette image and Elegant Egglant was perfect. The images stamped with Baja Breeze and Rose Red ink were stamped off on scratch paper first and are second generation.

Thanks for stopping by!

    This is so pretty, Vera! I have this set on order and can’t wait to get it to “play”. I haven’t done the retiform technique in ages! I had forgotten all about it! Thanks for jogging my memory! 🙂
