Today is PTI's Blog Hop! Check here for details and to post you own link.
So this month's challenge was to post a technique or skill you have learned from a fellow stamper and to even send a shout out to that person(s). I've learned so much from other people in terms of stretching my comfort zone yet being comfortable with my personal style.
I really couldn't pinpoint a particular skill to show but I did use this card as inspiration (3rd one down). I loved the simple design and that it could basically be used for any occasion. Her bow-tying skills are definitely more advanced than mine! Thanks Dawn for the "sketch" and for always inspiring! She's pretty nice too... I've met her twice!
The card is for a wedding I'm attending today. Sometimes I try to keep in line with the color scheme that's on the invitation. I know the thought and care that went into picking it so I try and show my appreciation by reflecting their color choice. This couple's invite was cream with pink accents and grey text. So I'm not totally in-line because of the orange ribbon... I said sometimes, ok? :) Anyways... I am loving the "Mr. & Mrs" sentiment from Big & Bold Wishes, it definitely is my go-to for wedding cards.
I guess I could talk about one of my favorite things to do. I love adding a bit of shine to my images using the Sakura stardust gel pen... so easy too.. LOVE-EET!!
Here's a close-up for you blingy-viewing pleasure!
