Retro Grid (by Carole)

Hello again,

My second contribution for this month has a bit of a retro feel to it. I have used 'worker' stamps from a variety of stamp sets to do a grid pattern. This involved a lot of masking as I decided where the stamps were going. It is stamped with Sepia Versafine ink. The grid evolved as I went along and each section was lightly drawn around as I went. The grid could be drawn out first and the stamped areas masked and stamped. This would probably be easier to build up.

I decided to add a touch of colour with the butterflies and mounted it onto the dark blue, as I like blue and brown together.

Very different cards emerge if you alter the grid pattern and change the colours. I have enjoyed using this technique and it is a good way to use some of the smaller stamps which are often only used for backgrounds. 

Hope you have enjoyed my card and I will be back again next week with my final sample for this session.

Many thanks for looking.

Happy Crafting.

Carole 😊
