Yesterday on SCS it was Try a New Technique day. The technique was called Split Negative BUT we had to do it with a twist! You were not to use black and white, you had to use colours.
I chose to use Soft Sky and Old Olive to go with the Fall Flowers DP I had pulled out of the drawer.
This was my first time attempting this technique but I rather like how they turned out. I didn't get the flower centered on the 3.5 x 3.5 piece of cardstock very well so when I cut the paper in half, the flower wasn't really in half...LOL! So I tried to mask my mistake by stamping a smaller flower and cutting it in half to help hide the center. Think it worked pretty well.
Both of these are thank you cards which I'm in need of after the holiday gift exchange.
Are you all getting tired of this stamp set yet? I'm not...I know this is going to be a very well used set this year!
I liked this simple sketch that Lauren made up. I was able to use up some of my little scrap papers that are laying around.
This card uses Pretty in Pink as the base. Wild Wasabi is the back panel with small pieces of Bashful Blue, Regal Rose and a misc piece of DP.
I popped the flower and the scalloped bird layers up on dimensionals.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope that everyone had a safe and Happy New Year. Best wishes to you and your family for a happy and healthy 2008!
