TSC Wednesday... Anything Goes


Hello! For TSC {The Scrapbooking Cottage} Wednesday, Stacy and I decided to take it easy and not have a particular theme or product feature. So today, anything goes!

I haven't been good about keeping up on my 2010 Christmas card stash (yes, I know it's only February, but still...), so this week I made it a priority to play along in Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge Week #11. Week 10 was to use the colors blue and red, so I decided to incorporate those colors as well. This week's challenge is a sketch challenge, which I followed loosely. I'm also playing along with JUGS20, hosted by Lisa. It is a technique challenge to use the Split Negative technique. I used Lori's tutorial HERE. The effect is really pretty cool.

I didn't want to take the focus away from my split image, so I omitted a narrow panel and the embellishment from the sketch. I embossed the poinsettia twice, once with white embossing powder onto Pure Poppy and next with red embossing powder onto white. I cut both images in half and joined the 2 to complete the technique. That means I ended up with 2 cards! I simply finished the poinsettia off with a white pearl.

Thanks SO much for stopping by!
