We had SO much fun at month’s Mystery Stamping Party!  We did a twist on the Go Retro Technique using either a brayer or Blending Brushes also with flower punches or dies.

Click here to get the supply list and measurements.

Here is the basic rules for creating the Go Retro background:

  1. Place 3 small sticky notes on 4 x 5 1/4 piece of Basic White cardstock.
  2. Place 2 medium size sticky notes on the cardstock, slightly overlapping the other notes
  3. Place one large size sticky note on the Basic White cardstock.  Make sure that there is some negative space (white) between the notes
  4. Select three colors of ink: one dark, one medium, one light. You will use the darkest color for your first layer of ink.  Make sure these colors will blend nicely and not make brown.
  5. Brayer your darkest ink color over the entire cardstock with a brayer or Blending Brush.  Clean the brayer.
  6. Remove the largest sticky note and brayer the entire piece of cardstock with the medium color ink.
  7. Remove the medium sticky notes and brayer your last and lightest color.
  8. Remove the smallest sticky notes and stamp and add embellishments to your project.
