CB Weekly Challenge

This week's challenge on the Craft Barn blog is retiform, something I know as the grid technique which involves a lot of stamping and masking. I have had some fun and made a page in my journal. I had made the union flag background a long time ago (I think I was planning on an Olympics page at the time) but not progressed any further with the page. It had involved a lot of masking and (I think) barn door and faded jeans DIs. I decided to do a London inspired page using Crafty Individuals British bulldog as the focal image. All the other stamps are by Artemio except for Big Ben which is by Scottish Borders.
I am also entering this as my second entry into the Crafty Individuals March Challenge.

  7. Great choice of Retiform shape! Love the way the dog looks solid against the background which gives the impression of being behind glass. Very original!
