TAC Retiform Blog Hop

How about a quick spring-y card on a cloudy day? It's time for another TAC blog hop. I've missed the last two so needed to get my act in gear and get into the action this month. It's a technique blog hop and the technique is Retiform. Heather Scott posted a wonderful tutorial here and my card is but a humble nod to her artistry. I followed her technique but didn't overlap the layers of ink much (mostly because I forgot to do so - lol!). ;) I added a little shimmer with the clear gelly pen (sorry the pic doesn't show all the shimmery loveliness) and also put a little turquoise stickles in 3 sequins from the clear gem pack
Supplies used: Palette Inks - Noir, Cote D'Azure, Chartreuse, Belle Rose, Iris and Jardin Moss; Stamp set - TAC's Happily Grateful, White Ultrasmooth Cardstock, Bazzill Artesian Pool Cardstock, sponges, clear and pearl gem collection and stardust clear gelly pen

What do you think? Thanks for popping past my blog and feel free to join us on the hop!

What a nice spring card - much needed right now with all this snow. Love the butterfly as your focal image.
