A Couple of Stamp TV Challenges

This first card is Gina's challenge for Split Negative.  I did not emboss the image, but the look is semi the same.  I really never have had luck with this technique (could be the embossing I have bad luck with) - I used Block Greetings and I am happy with the result.  Just  a little bummed about the 4th NOT straight sewing - the first 3 are pretty good -- ha!  A sewer - not so much.  I love the look of it on cards though.

 Now this second challenge is the window technique.  I really have to say I was thrilled with this brayered background.  Again, I usually have bad luck with brayering and I go back to my sponges~~~ however, I paid attention to Gina's video and SURPRISE SURPRISE when you follow the directions it works. lol  I used my standard GKD Tree Silhouettes.  I think I have used this set more than any I have purchased from GKD.

Anyway, Gina is running a 10 day countdown of the best video techniques she has made.  Everyday there is a new video and a challenge to go with it.  BIG WINNER at the end Spellbinders Nestabilities are part of the prize!!  Come on over and join in~~ who knows you might win!!
Thanks for popping in --
