WOW! this took a bit of thinking and a full day , even if my time is only worth $2.00 an hour I would have to charge $25.00 for the finished card. LOL The areas that look like plain white cardstock are embossed and look great in real life. Go to tutorials at mfpspeedytv.ning.com and work one out , the finished card is a lot of fun
Retiform???What is that? Never heard the word before . I followed directions in the tutorial and love this technique .Still don't know what the word is but love how it turned out and will do it again for sure............. come to http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com and give it a go.
For this challenge I painted the card stock with several layers of gesso, it left a really nice texture. I did direct to paper coloring over the gesso come give it a try..... http://mfpspeedytv.ning.com
