I have to tell you I really struggled to come up with stamps that I thought I could showcase for this technique, Then I remembered that adorable image from Mice Day that had drawn me to the set... No other small compatible images in that set no problem, I just went to the Sew Thankful set to fill in the other retiform grids...
I already knew I loved the retiform card Avis Anderson had done with these images...
I think that while the end card came out nice these 2 colors Charcoal and L'Amore Red weren't strong enough on my card to really show this technique, but having spent so much time on this card I couldn't bring myself to start over. After I was done I used the Running Stitches set to frame each grid, it was off a little and the seamstress in me wishes I would have done real stitching!
I had a lot of fun once I started playing with technique and will me giving this another try!
Supplies: T-3301 Mice day,T-3288 Sew Thankful, T-2610 Running Stitches, Memento Tuxedo Black, White Premium CS, Black CS, Scarlet CS, Black Grosgrain Ribbon, MS Border Punch, Copics
