Creative Inking Blog Hop - Masculine Cards - Soar Confidently

Welcome to the Monthly Creative Inking Blog Hop.

Blog hot

I am so glad that you can join us.  You know we have been doing this blog Hop since January 2015.  Wow, it is hard to believe that there are some of us that have been in this group since then!!!!

Enough of the trivia, but the reason I bring it ups is that I am going to show you how to do a very old technique called Retiform.  Actually it is older than we have been blogging together.   This month's theme is Masculine cards. I thought that the Retiform technique would be perfect using the Soar Confidently Stamp Set.  

I hope that you like this and watch my video on my take of this technique.  I will give you a list of supplies  that I used in my card below.

Now check out the video and let me know what you think of this technique
