Have you ever had one of those days when your creative side seems to fight back??
As soon as I saw the split negative challenge over at Just Us Girls, I knew I wanted to play along. This is such a neat and easy technique. (I say that of course, because this is only the second time I have ever attempted it and because I have a knack for sticking my foot in my mouth and spouting off about things I don't know much about. Its just my way, what can I say.)
Anywho, I had BIG plans for this card. I was going to clear emboss over some stunningly gorgeous bright green and teal patterned paper and sponge with black, then back emboss for the split negative. And I did. I would show it to you now, but it is torn and crumpled and shredded and in the trash can right now.
I sooooo resisted going for the black and white effect. And really, now that it is all over, I don't know why I put up such a fight. I actually LIKE the way the card turned out.
So, the day is over and the card is finished. I am bruised and sore and tired. I fought the card. And, the card won!!
SUE?? SUE?? Is that you? I used brand new light tent just a couple of minutes ago (10:33pm) having completely missed a perfectly sunny day. (Card battles will do that, I guess.) I absolutely LOVE it!!! And thank goodness, because I don't know how well I would have handled another frustration today!! Thanks so much for your help!!
p.s. While attempting this challenge, I discovered a new technique (well, new for me. I've seen ya'll use it before, but I've never tried it before.) that didn't work for this, but got me started on another card. I'll post it tomorrow. See you then. :-)
