Isn’t it funny …

…how ideas suddenly sneak up on you. Sometimes they turn out like the picture in your head, and sometimes they go in totaly the opposite direction! This one turned out exactly like I wanted it to, Paper Makeup Stamps had this wonderful picture for inspiration (love to know where it came from) and Paper Garden Projects wanted a farewell to winter project. I can tell you am so sick fed up of our weather, I just had to do a nice spring type card and here it is:

Sunday Sketch & Stamp 21 meets Just us Girls

I have kept looking at the sketch for Sunday Sketch & Stamp number 21 and kept putting it off as I really wasnt sure what image to use. Along comes a challenge at Just Us Girls that called for the use of the Split Negative Technique. I have never tried this before but loved the results, I admit I cheated a little and used a digital stamp and created the image digitally (much less mess šŸ™‚ ) so here is my card
