Split negative!


Good Morning!

I hope all is well with my cyber friends! Sorry this is late.... I couldn't get a good picture last night! This one isn't the best, but it will have to do! LOL! I had one awesome day yesterday.... I always look at my email first thing and I had an email from Olga. That's nothing unusual but she had in big red letters I had won Timeless Tuesday at Flourish's! Yea! I get to go shopping! To fun!They have such a great selection of stamps, I can't make up my mind! I have to decide between 3 sets I really like! What a dilemma! I'm so glad Olga takes care of me! Thanks for the letting me know Olga!
Ok onto my card.... This card is for Mercy's Tuesday sketch and Stvtc 39. The sketch is obvious, the technique is split negative. This is a really fun technique. It took a bit to get exactly what I wanted. The card is really pretty in real life! I used not quite navy as my card base layered with whisper white. My focal image is from Verve's beautiful you. I love the silver embossing on the not quite navy! Well I better scoot! I need to get ready for work!

Have an awesome day!
Patti
