I dont have 1 favorite because I like to add a lot of variety into my projects. I love to chalk or ink the edges of my cards, paper, die cuts. Love using stickles and paint. Paper piecing and sometimes cutting the shapes out on my own. Its fun to just pick up a pencil and paper and draw something out. In fact my Santa hat on my layout I hand drew and added cotton to it so it looks fuzzy.
