Have You Ever Tried Imitating Someone Else’s Design Style?

By | 01/22/2014

Have you ever tried imitating someone else’s design style?  We all have other stampers that we admire and I’m no exception to that rule.  I really enjoy looking at things created by people whose design style is completely different than mine!  Every now and then, I like to try to stretch my skills by imitating a style that really isn’t “me”.   I also like to participate in challenges!  Today, I did both!

Individually, all of the parts of this card are “me”.  It’s the layering that I’m working on.  My style is layering when all the layers increase by 1/8 to 1/4 of an each.  This style is layering with what feels like random sizes so you have smaller pieces of layers peeking out from below the top elements.  This style also includes more elements on one card than I’m comfortable with!!!

The challenge for today was to create a card using Soft Sky, Silver and Midnight Muse.  This is a color challenge and you are allowed to use a neutral.  I chose to add some Whisper White to this card.  My friend, Holly Krautkremer, has challenges on her blog at the Rubber Redneck Stampede (cute, right?!) that I really love participating in.  This challenge is part of her Frosty Kisses Class.  I consider Holly to be the master at layering elements!
