Shirley Hotop


I just decided this afternoon to play along with the retiform blog hop. I have always loved this technique but this is my first time to try it, this was my third try and I decided to go with it. I used Joy Found from our Inspiration catalog as it had so many different images to play with, and my color palette was burnt umber, jardin moss and ballet blue. I added just a bit of highlight with the gold pen (which you can't really see in this scan. It was a lot of fun and I am sure I will try it again.
