i don't know about you, but when it comes to challenges, i'm excited to hear the word "favorite" in the title, because it means i get to do something i already love! don't get me wrong, i also enjoy challenges that make me stretch, but the occasional "gimme" is nice, isn't it? i mention all of this because it just so happens that this week's challenge at shopping our stash is called "favorite technique" so you might want to come along and show us one of yours! be sure to mention what it is, as well, k? as you know, my favorite technique is collage, especially the kind that has layers of vintage paper and/or doilies. so you probably won't be surprised too shocked to see a layered doily tree on my card:
not to be obnoxious, but i really love how these trees look and they are soooooooooo easy to make! if you're interested in trying it out, i've actually made a little step-by-step tutorial, which, by a lucky coincidence, is located in the post directly below this one. :)
as for layout, you can never go wrong with a sketch from cardabilities, am i right? this is the current one, #112:
meanwhile my lovely SOS dt darlings have all made gorgeous projects featuring their favorite techniques, so why not hop over and check those out!
