Bugs and Butterflies MFP Stamp Shop Blog Hop - Day 4

WELCOME  
TO MFP STAMP SHOP
Bugs and Butterflies
 BLOG HOP
 Watch out for creepy crawlies !

Join us each day, April 26th through April 29th for a "butterfly-kisses" good time.  We'll have tutorials and Design Team inspiration.  There will be prizes for leaving comments on the Design Team's blogs and prizes for trying our tutorials.  You will have 2 weeks to add your project to the APRIL 29th post for us to see, so there is no excuse not to join in the fun.  

Please hop along with us.  You could win one of the MFP Stamp Shop bugs and butterflies related stamp sets.  Just comment on the following blogs (don't forget this one) each day for more chances to win.  You do NOT need to comment on on all the blogs each day as the names are drawn randomly.  Try one of the tutorials shown during the hop and add your photo to the Inlinkz at the bottom of the April 29th post. The winners will be announced on May 14, 2016 on the MFP Stamp Shop Blog. You can go back and comment if you missed a day. (HINT: The more you comment, the more chances you will have to win.  Comments left on the MFP blog count twice. ) The deadline for commenting and posting pictures of your projects is Friday, May 13, 2016 at 10:00 PM EST.

Tutorials
April 27-- Flower Arranging by Sandy
April 29-- Retiform by Pat
I really love how this technique turned out.  I did have to try it a couple of times before I got it right and even then, I think I may have made too many little sections.  I used a couple of sets to create my card and you can very obviously see my dragonflies as my bugs.  I couldn't resist using the other featured set on my last card of the hop.  With 10 different dragonflies, it's an incredible deal!

If you didn't start at the beginning of the hop, you will want to do so.  Let's get started!  Here are the links for the rest of the Design Team: BonnieGail, KarenKrenLoisMariLynnPatPam

I like how the Retiform Technique creates a spotlight effect on the focal image. TFS!

Love how your retiform turned out. Not too many little sections, in my opinion. I love how you used the chicken wire. I never would have thought to use that. Great job.
