Split Negative Love

The main image on this card is made using the split negative technique. I've seen cards made using this technique, but never had the courage to try it out. Hurdles are made to be jumped, so I jumped, I think it turned out pretty good. It's always fun to try something new and it turn out looking good. Hop over to "Just Us Girls" Challenge and create something outside your comfort zone. I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches, but discovered I have missed the deadline, but I'll give a clickable link here because you might want to check out Melissa's challenge blog she's got some good sketches. Next week I'll have to make sure I get done a day earlier. And as usual I can't seem to make a heart card without putting this eyelash yarn on it. I'm not really a frou frou girl, but I do love this yarn.

Well done!! So great that you tried something new - and did it so well - hurdles are just there to make us THINK we can't do it - but you proved you can! Thanks so much for supporting Just Us Girls and for playing along with our challenge. Hope to see you again next week.
