Hi Everyone! Thank you to all who played along with Just Us Girls sketch challenge hosted by Tracey. This week, for the Just Us Girls Technique Challenge, Lisa is our wonderful Hostess & chose to challenge us all with the Split Negative Technique. If you are like me & have never attempted this technique, please refer to the awesome tutorial written by Lori, that can be found at Splitcoaststampers.
Here is my Merci card:
I inked up one of the larger PTI Damask Design images with 1st Versamark, then embossed on the SU Always Artichoke cs. Washed the stamp, then inked it up with SU Always Artichoke ink, stamped the image on PTI Rustic White cs then cut both stamped images out using the Spellbinders Labels 1 die, then cut each Label right down the center to get my Split Negative.Since I had the two stamped Split Negative images, I used them both & made a set of two cards. I like the way these two cards look side by side. For the scripty background, I inked up the Judi Kins Signature Artist stamp with SU Chocolate Chip ink. One of my new favorite background stamps :)This teensy - weensy rosebud is a Prima product that I recently discovered while shopping at my local craft store. Makes for a sweet embellishment while adding just a splash of color :)
I hope you can join along with Just Us Girls this week giving the Split Negative technique a try :) For complete details, please visit the Just Us Girls challenge site & be sure to visit ALL the DT girls (found on my side bar) & Chupa to see what they have created!
