Modified Split Negative Technique

Hi there!  Gosh, it's already the middle of the week and there's still a lot to do to get ready for another crop on Saturday and attend a shower on Sunday!  Yesterday was our monthly Hostess Club meeting.  One of the projects the ladies made is shown above.  My inspiration came from Deb Valder's video, which can be viewed here.  It's the Split Negative technique, modified.  The stamped square from the Postage Due set is only 1-1/8".  It is easier to have the inked stamp face up on your work surface and place the squares onto the stamp.  This can get a little messy removing the squares, though.  Deb has a great tip on how to remove the squares from the stamp without getting inky fingers.  She wrapped a piece of painter's tape around her fingers (like you would to get lint off your clothes) and just picked up the squares with the tape.  Very clever!
The ladies liked the projects.  I'm so glad because I really appreciate their loyalty and support!  Thank you again, ladies!  Afterwards, we had a leisurely lunch and talked. You're kidding, right?  Women sitting around talking!  LOL

Must get busy on some household chores and determine what to take to the crop.  Thank you so much for stopping by today!
