Now we're onto the second half of the blog hop week and I'm on the list along with the rest of my sister design teammates.  Continuing with my grid cards I'll be featuring faux grid and retriform grid cards.  Now retriform is just another way of describing grid and faux grid is another type of the grid technique.  Faux grid is coloring with Pebble chalks (can use any artist chalks) then stamping images.  Next you take an ordinary eraser to form the, huh? I think so.  Don't forget to leave a comment to be included in the drawing to win one of the new stamp sets.  Also if you stop by Mark's Finest Papers a Heinrich Co. blog you can click on the samples there to see lots more inspiration.

Here's the Design Team:
