JUGS Technique Challenge and Taylored Expressions 100th Sketch!

Wow... it's been a while since I have had the opportunity to post anything on the blog!  It also means that it has been awhile since I had an opportunity to craft (not counting a couple of birthday cards and Valentine's gifts that I made, but didn't have time to post).  Over at Just us Girls, they have challenged us to create a project using the split negative technique. I used Lori Craig's tutorial that you can see here. I also wanted to get in on the 100th Sketch celebration over at Taylored Expressions.  Putting both the Sketch and the split negative together in this one project did pose somewhat of a challenge for me, but while I was not 100 percent thrilled with the finished project... I didn't hate it so much that I wasn't willing to post it!



I used a lot of items I just received from Papertrey Ink to craft this card including the Friends 'til the End stamp set for the split negative technique and the sentiment which I stamped using their Ripe Avocado ink.  The base of the card is Papertrey's soft stone cardstock and I coupled that with Smokey Shadow (from their Perfect Match paper line).  I used stickles to highlight the area beside the flower (dots) and used Glossy Accents to highlight the flower.  For the split negative technique I used Pure Poppy cardstock from Papertrey Ink and white cardstock.  The printed paper is Jenni Bowlin from a mini 4 x 4 stack that I recently purchased.  I also used brads from Basic Grey, green ribbon from my stash and my Cicut to cut the scallop under the patterned paper.
