Technique: Retiform Grid!

By | June 13, 2015

The Retiform Grid technique is addictive!

I have been looking through a stash of old stamping magazines that were given to me. In the process I have been reminded of the many techniques I have used in the past but had not done in a very long time. The Retiform Grid technique is one of those techniques. I had forgotten how much fun it can be! I couldn’t decide which one of the Retiform Technique cards to share today… so I am sharing FOUR of them! It’s a great way for you to see first hand how different looks can be achieved by choosing different colors and stamp styles.

This first card is what comes to mind when I think of the Retiform Grid Technique. I’ve used the new Awesomely Artistic stamp set from Stampin’ Up!. It is perfect for collage type stamping and therefore my first choice for my first attempt (after so many years!).

The card makes the technique look much more difficult than it actually easy. It is basically a masking technique… where different sections are masked of to be inked and or stamped. The paper/post-its are simply moved and rearranged as shown in the photo below.

Here are a few more cards using the Retiform Grid Technique with different stamp sets and inks. Creating them can become additive!
