Postal 2nd Annual Challenge, Split Negative Card Swap Due August 22, 2012
 
New Open Challenge, Split Negative (Which is a split image) Card Swap Due August 22nd, 2012.

You must check in 2 weeks before the end date and let me know you are still in the swap. If you need to drop out that is fine life happens but I don't have the time to pm 20 people a few times to see if you are still in the swap. If you can't do this then don't sign up. Thank you.

This is a little different then my usual swaps. As it is a technique challenge. It requires you to use the split negative. If you have never heard of it. There is an instruction link. I think the affect it creates is really neat. So why not get some scrap paper out and try it. The possibilities are endless with this technique. We get to bring back to life stamps we got tired of. Plenty of time to play.

Now who canít stand to learn or try something new? I know I always want to learn new things and am always asking questions on here. Be creative and have fun with it. So what are you waiting for? Try different color combos. Ink combos. Youíll never know what you will come up with until you give it a shot.

Sign up for as many spots as you'd like, but please, make a different design or color for each spot you take.

Make your cards theme related to a theme or image you really like.. The stamps U chose to ink should reflect You. But have fun doing it. Oh Heck Create a piece of art for your wall using this technique. We want our swapper to feel as if they are receiving a card from a special friend. Be you I encourage Creativity, sense of humor and off the cuff cards. If you are not into this you can still join and pm me and tell me you do not want sassy off the cuff cards. I want everyone to be happy and have fun.

Description requirement:
Full Size Card - 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 It could be a regular full size card, Fancy folds, pop ups any style card are always welcome. If you make a long card or different size please include envies.

Quantity: 5+1
(the plus one is for the hostess...that's me

You will make six cards in total and receive five back

Embellishments are optional on this card as the image you ink my stand alone.
Take pride in making fabulous cards with friends in mind
Everyone is welcome. If you never done a swap before take the plunge it will be fun.
Take the plunge try this out. Most of us will be newbieís at this. We can learn together.

Recipe:

I'd like to try this swap but was wondering if things HAVE to be embossed or can I try it without the embossing?
