Using Negative Space

Back again with another card for Operation Write Home.

Have you noticed some of the creative cards being made using the negative space left from a die cut? I've been wanting to try the technique for awhile now, and finally gave it a shot. Here's the result.

I cut out the cicles and label with nesties, embossed the resulting "negatives" with a Swiss Dots embossing folder, then adhered it to my stamped and colored image with pop dots. Not too inventive, but it was fun to do just the same. I'll definitely being trying this again, hopefully with a little more creative flair!

The floral stamp used here is by Karen Lockhart and the sentiment and paper is from PaperTrey. The image was colored with Copics.

So there you have it. Have you tried something different today? Give it a go, you may surprise yourself!
