Old, forgotten technique



Ahhh, an old forgotten tech: The grid or retiform technique. In light of Earth Day and the "no layer" ink-stain.com challenge, I decided to try the old girl again. It wasn't all that bad until I decided to free-hand the center in Sakura gel pen. Now, I know better than to free-hand anything, but I went ahead and was doing ok, until halfway through, and there was no stopping then. lol Oh well, it's only paper, as a wise friend reminded me :)

All of the earth-wise stamps are no name, bright pink rubber stamps that I got years ago in a junk dept. store. The heart shaped earth is one of my all-time favorites though.
