From Your Heart to Ours - Techniques

It's time for another challenge but before we get to that, it was just brought to my attention that I forgot something very important - I forgot to draw two winners from the April challenges for the prizes from our awesome sponsors!!! So I let Random.org pick two winners and they are:

#3 Carla I. from the Showers/Flowers week
and
#17 Shelly D. from the Recycle week

Congrats ladies! Please email me with your mailing address so I can forward the information to the prize sponsors and they can get your prize in the mail.

Now on to this week's challenge. It's another From Your Heart to Ours week which means we want you to share not only your artwork with us, but also some details and this time it is all about your favorite technique. We not only want you to share your artwork using that technique but also tell us how it's done. We might just find OUR next favorite technique from YOUR post!

Here is what the DT created - be sure to go to each gal's blog to read about the technique they used:








Now it's your turn to show us your favorite technique! Create your artwork - be sure to use CTMH products - and link up here. We can't wait to learn from you!

This is a great challenge and a wonderful opportunity for me to try a new technique. This criss cross card is my new favorite. I put a link to a very good tutorial on my blog.

I'm probably too late with this but just found your blog last week. I wasn't sure I knew enough techniques to enter and then was not confident that my artwork would match up with the rest of the entries since I am so new to this. I am LOVING CTMH and their products. This was a fun challenge for me as well.

Just posted my favourite technique, a bit late, but read the post and you will see why. :)
Now to keep the thinking cap on for this weeks challenge.
