Walk beside me for FSC

 Our 70th challenge theme at Fashionable Stamping Challenges is your,  'Favorite Technique'.
Please pop over for all the details and see what we all made. Remember our challenge must have a stamped image as the main focus.
Gosh!  how do you choose, this is hard one for me as I do like all  sorts of techniques.
So I might be mentioning more than one. Hope my design team sisters will forgive me for this.
I decided to go back to my very first love, which is rubber stamping. If it wasn't for these craft items I would not be trying  the techniques  I do today.  These images are from Crafty Individuals.  Embossing the stamped image with clear powder, which makes it easier to colour. Yes, I do use distress markers, pencils and spectrum noire pens etc  But for this image it was my water colours that I reached for, another favorite of mine.

As you can see the card  is layered up with papers and trimmings.
The Vintage Photo distress ink also had its usual outing for extra shading.

I do hope you will share your favorites with us, please remember we are a stamping challenge.

Thank you for stopping by, I do so appreciate the comments you leave.
