I follow a lot of other demonstrators. I think it's best to learn from the best and since every demonstrator has their own take on how to use our products, I find I can always see a variety of styles thanks to the beauty of internet and Pinterest. Some of these demonstrators make me want to buy product that I've never thought was my style and others have just taught me new ways to use what I bought.
One of the demonstrators that I have followed the longest and taken a lot of online classes from is Kimberly Van Diepen. Her blog, Stampin' by the Sea, has a lot of vintage cards and projects on it. These have never been my style but I love her color combinations and the way she distributes her embellishments.
This card for my dad's birthday a few weeks ago was my first voyage into vintage. I used Baked Brown Sugar ink, which is my go-to for distressing. I used a doily for a stencil and then tore a part of it off to use with the woodcut piece. The stamp set, Guy Greetings, is one I'm having a lot of fun playing with. I then added some loose thick baker's twine and took a deep breath. I think it's beautiful and unique, just like my dad.
