DRS Designs blog challenge #20

Welcome back to Challenge #20 in the DRS Designs blog challenge series. This week the challenge is to create a project/card using your 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 us...you 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 the challenge post on the DRS blog. 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 being given by DRS Designs (make sure you post your link on the DRS blog). 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 DRS blog to see the favorite techniques of all of the design team members!

When I saw this challenge I realized that I'm not really a technique girl. I don't really do anything fancy or unusal. I'm more of a stamps, paper, glue, markers girl. So after thinking about it I decided my favorite techniques (if you can even call them techniques) are:
-Coloring with markers...this is my favorite thing to do right now
-detail cutting / adding dimension (I cut out a lot of things and pop them up with dimensionals)
and
-omitting (A LOT of times I only use a portion of a image..therefore omitting part of it - I most often do this with sentiments.) For my card I used this stamp but only used the "congratulations" part of the sentiment (omitting the rest)

Here is a card where I used all 3 of these techniques:
Thanks for stopping by today! I hope you all have a wonderful week!

I never thought of "omitting" as a technique, but you're right, it is, cause I do it too! Your card is adorable! TFS!
