Challenge #20 - Favorite Technique

>> Monday, May 4, 2009

Welcome back to Challenge #20 in the DRS Designs blog challenge series. This week we challenged the DT to create a project/card using their favorite technique. We hope this inspires you to pull out your stamps and get stamping! We would love for you to play along with us. Share your favorite technique with just may introduce us to something we've never tried before! If you play along, please post a direct link to your project in the comment section of this post. If you upload to a public gallery, please use the keyword DRSC20. If you play along, you'll enter yourself into a drawing for some blog candy! We don't know what the candy will be just yet...we'll put on our thinking caps on during the challenge period and you'll get a surprise in your mailbox!! Drawing will take place Sunday night, May 17, 2009. (You do not need DRS images to play, but if you have them, by all means use them!)

Check out the DT's favorite techniques below and visit their blogs for more explanation behind their techniques!

**Thanks to everyone who played along with us in our past color challenge!!! We loved seeing your creations!****

See you soon...

Cathy Indelicato/Crafty Thoughts...
Current favorite(s): sewing, detail cutting and adding dimension!

Brayering Zindorf-style is Jessica G.'s current favorite technique/ Jess' Obsession:

Vicki's favorite techniques are distressing and double background Poppin' Pastels
tutorial can viewed on Stamped Smiles blog:

Dawn Knight at Dawns Rubber Room: Fave Techniques are FUN FOLDS, COLORING, and CUTTING

Jennifer's Favorites are Gamsol Magic, & Layering while using sketch challenges for layouts, ribbon and metal embellishments.

Heather's favorite techniques are omitting, coloring with markers and detail cutting/adding dimension.

Sue - DRS Designs - My favorite technique is Embossed Sparkling Enameling (yes, I make this stuff up as I go along :) which is hard to see in a photo, but very cool in person. Check out my Saturday post for another card and directions!

Sort of along the same lines as Sue, DawnMercedes has dipped the entire stamped layer into clear embossing powder for a slick look. (Glad Sue named it...b/c I didn't have a name for it!)

Deb chose to color her image with prismas and gamsol, and to add some paper tole, popping some of the design up on dimensionals.

I love all these fabulous ideas! Amazing cards, girlfriends! I have to say to Dawn Knight that I'm impressed that cutting is your favorite technique! I cut out 8 fish for an ATC swap yesterday and was almost nuts by time I I admire you! *grin*

I'm with Deb though, I'd go crazy doing all that cutting :)

as far as the cutting thing... it makes me focus on ONE THING and I cannot let any of the little bothersome things creep in... so I get into the ZONE!!!
