Savvy Projects Blog Hop - Retiform

Okay, this challenge was a huge hurdle for me. I have a never been able to get the effect I want to with this technique. So, I waited till the last minute to create it. And well the first one was not so good. I figured I had to go back to the drawing board. Which meant that I had to watch a couple of video tuitorial. Well, I think I finally got a sample that was half way presentable.

This sample is made with the Sunflower set, Script background, Vintage Background, Fly Fanciful Vintage.
