Man Card - Brother

I think I mentioned before that I struggle making Man cards - so I am forcing myself to make a few using the same stamp set but with different techniques. This one uses the Retiform technique and it’s probably the closest that I will ever get to a one layer card.

Man Card - Brother

The technique is fairly simple using glossy paper, some dye based inks and I used a Tim Holtz blending tool but you could use a scrap of sponge. Oh - lots of Post Its. Here is a link to the tutorial on SCS.

Have a creative day!
