Retiform Technique

This is a fun technique!  Below is a picture of a feminine and masculine card using this technique:  Notice the envelopes.....



You simply take a scratch piece of card stock with a straight edge and sponge color onto your card creating a grid.  I used Crumb cake on Whisper White card stock.  Then sponge around the edges.  (I only did this on about half of the card to leave room for the 'Happy Birthday')  I then used post it notes for each section and stamped.  (Each section at a time)  You can see I created 5 sections on each card, but you can do as many or as little as you want.  Here are some close ups:

The feminine version
And.....

 The masculine version...Ta Da  Drum roll please.  It is always hard to do masculine cards, we have so many flowers.  

Fun technique, give it try
