SUO Challenge 79, A Favorite Technique – Our Top 3!

     When we first chose "Favorite Technique" for our SU Only Challenge, I imagined that we'd get lots of different variations on the same few techniques.  What was I thinking?!! There's a list of all the techniques represented in this challenge at the end of this post.

     Congratulations to all of you for your delightful projects and, in many cases, good clear instructions for how to do what you showed off!  More than half of you received votes this time around and I'm sure that if we didn't limit the number of votes possible, all of you would have ended up being in the mix, too!

     We did vote for our Top 3 for this challenge, though, and we hope you'll visit their blogs to see their Favorite Technique projects much more clearly than those little thumbnails show off.  Just click on the photo to get to the designer's blog.


Bronwyn Eastley.  This is not just paper punching.  Bronwyn made this adorable little "punch art" owl using My Digital Studio.  This is digital punch art at its cutest!  It's not totally digital, though, as she cut this little owl out and gave it some fun texture before showing it off.








Karren Johnson.  Karren's background for the Wetlands Stamp Set image really does invoke the seashore.  The Fossil Stone technique makes the background so soft that you can feel the quiet elegance of a visit to the shore.








Lucy Tustian.  Lucy's Rolling Marbleg technique makes a perfect background for the Zoo Review Stamp Set. Her blender pen watercoloring also beautifully highlights these images.

Thanks for the 'shout out'.  Loved the idea of using a favourite technique.  There are quite a few techniques I need to try out! Thanks for providing a great challenge site for SU products.
