Something to share

Gosh where has January gone? It seems like it was only here yesterday. So much has been going on and things preventing me from blogging. But today I have managed to get a card made and even took pictures with my camera (I have so got learn how to use this thing). OK the light isn't brilliant today as we have had dark clouds and a few snow showers. Not coming to much though, thankfully. But I have tried my best and played with setting too on the camera. Anyway here is the card I want to share with you all. Its technique is called the Split Negative. I learned how to do this many years ago but had forgotten all about it till it was refreshed by another Stampin' Up! demo here in the UK. Thanks Monica for sharing a wonderful technique.


I have used elegant eggplant as my main colour (card and ink pad) also whisper white and also white embossing powder. This is all mounted on some Lavendar lace cardstock. Whisper white taffeta and one of my own brads for embellishments.


I have also stamped inside on the insert.


I have used the small baroque border with the Elegant eggplant ink pad (yep no ink cartridge). You can do this for small pieces of work but I would recommend the cartridges for larges sections. Well I better get back to crafting as I need to get a few things done today. One being my son's Valentines present, for a girl he really likes ;-) Bless him he is only 10.
