Technique Challenge: Split Image

Today's Technique Challenge at SCS was to do a split image. The instructions can be found on the challenge thread HERE. For this card, I decided to use my much-neglected SU! stamps and papers. For one half of the image, I used Chocolate Chip Craft ink and Clear embossing powder, and for the other I used Versamark and White embossing powder. This card is definitely different than my usual style, and I'm still not sure if I like it, but sometimes you just have to try new things, right?!? That's one of my stamping resolutions for the New Year: to go beyond my comfort zone and try new techniques and styles.

I don't have big plans for tonight. I'm still not feeling 100% yet, and Chris has been sick too, so we're going to stay home with Anna and Caroline and ring in the New Year quietly. Kyle and Megan will be at friends' houses tonight (teenagers have much more fun than 40-something moms!). I hope you find a wonderful way to begin 2008, whether with family or friends, at a party or at home. I wish you all a very Happy New Year! Thanks for being such an important part of my 2007!! :)
