Countdown Challenges at Stamp TV

Welcome to my blog! I have been away from blogging over the Christmas Holiday but ready to resume some regular posting, at least posting when I can.  I hope that everyone had a lovely and safe holiday and that you were blessed with love and friendship. We had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed it tremendously.
Hope the snow did not disrupt too many of your plans.

I have been working on some projects for Stamp TV"s Year end Countdown challenges. Check it out here.  The is a seies of 10 challenge including techniques of Split Negative,  Faux Window, Distressed Newsprint, Adding a Button to a Bow, Shimmering Background Paper, Cracked Glass, Cuttlebugged Waxed Paper, and Rubberband Background and more to come.

Today I am showing my cards for the split negative:
