Just Us Girls Challenge #20

Happy Day before Valentine's Day!
Welcome to the Just Us Girls 20th challenge! Can you believe it's been 20 weeks? Time really flies and it's been a blast working with the JUGS team!

This week our fabulous Lisa is our hostess and she challenges us to use the split negative technique! This is a super fun and super cool technique. I love Gina K's tutorial over at Stamp TV HERE. Gina shows the technique via a video tutorial that rocks.

For this challenge in honor of Valentine's Day I chose to use a fun chunky stamp from Unity Stamp Co. Here is what I came up with:



Be sure to swing by the Just Us Girls blog for inspiration from the design team and swing by their own blogs:
