JUGS Challenge #20

DSCF6840

This week the JUGS girls have challenged us with a technique—the Split Negative.  I have seen this but have never done it.  I love the technique, (you can see it here on SCS) but I am not sold on my cards; perhaps another accent color or another image would have been better, but I pushed on and finished them despite my “non-love” for them!

It wasn’t until I finished my cards that I realized my ribbon was Brocade Blue and my accents were Ballet Blue.  Grrr….oh well, as I said, it was too late to turn back!    Each card is basically the same; the Labels One nestie is  a little different on each one.

Tres Chic is the background stamp; Of The Earth hostess set is the bird image.  I did not put any sentiments on these; I’ll probably use them as get-well or birthday cards.  I am looking forward to trying this technique again with different results!   Thanks for visiting today!

  5. You are your own worst critic LeAnne, these are beautiful! I love the background paper and with just a touch of blue(s) it is a nice elegant card. Good for you for following through and doing TWO...the other halves of my split negative are somewhere in the waiting to be used pile, ha!

  11. Great card, I have never tried this technique. I also like that you worked some blue into this, that is an under used color.

  12. LeAnne - I really like these cards! I know the blues bug you, but really - it adds interest, and I think they are perfect the way they are. Very unique, very trendy-looking!

  15. Hey LeAnne - nicely done - it's not the easiest technique in my mind to do and do well but you did it AND you did it well. You can be less hard on yourself and only we intense paper crafters would notice brocade vs ballet blue (of course I was the one who tattled on myself about an upside down ribbon so I get it!)
    Thanks for playing along with Just Us Girls again.
