  1. My favourite technique would have to be layering as I use this so many times. So simple and yet it helps lift your project, and make it much more appealing.

    It would have to be masking and layering for that really 3D effect - especially with chalk inks, you can achieve some fabulous soft/misty effects.

  10. My favourite is sponging, even if I only sponge the edges of a card to soften it, my sponges det a daily workout, I love them

  11. I love learning new techniques but the ones I use the most are sponging and distressing for that Vintage look. Making paper flowers would run a very close second.

  12. My favourite technique at the moment would have to be patchwork... super excited about my up and coming class on it

    ReplyDelete
  13. To do - layering. To look at - paper piecing (I'm just too lazy to do it myself!). :D

  16. Not sure if I'm allowed to answer (as I've won one day) but I'll just add mine in anyway...
    I love crumpling up a piece of cardstock (several) times - brings flat perfect cardstock to life!!!! I love it! But stamp BEFORE screwing up into a ball!

  17. Embossing is my long time favourite but lately masking has been featuring on a lot of my cards. I love how easy it is to give a card some simple dimension :)

  30. I love sponging. I mainly sponge the edges but have a big drawer full of sponges as I use them on most projects.

  31. *LOL* I'm so boring I just love to sponge, I feel it really finishes off the edges of the card/page and adds extra depth to it

    ReplyDelete
  32. Well stamps are a relatively new thing to me. So still lots to learn. But oh, what fun!!

  33. Another tricky one! I've learned so many new techniques since becoming a demo .. but my favourite would have to be heat embossing. I love watching the embossing powder change, and the WOW effect this has. It's one of my favourite things to do, and one of my favourite things to demonstrate :)

  38. I think daubing would be my most 'go to' technique. Although there are many others...

  39. Sponging around the edges would have to be my fave...it seems to give an extra depth and the SU daubers make it so much easier :) Kia

  44. I love to finish off with sponging whether I use it on the background, the card edges or on the edges of the inserts. It adds dimension and just seems to finish everything off. Just love those little sponge daubers.

    I also love trying new tecnhiques my latest was Black Magic which turned out really nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Oh so so many to choose between! I love clear embossing over colour (when you ink your stamp with versamark and then ink before you stamp) I also like sponging, rock and roll, paper piecing, ok I cant pick one! :)
