Technique Tuesday - Split Negative

Okay, this one was harder than I thought, because I couldn't get Halloween images out of my head. I didn't want to show you the same image in a card, so I chose a winter image. I have seen some blogs where the artist has used a black and white theme. I have been wanting to do this myself, so I put the two of these together. Just using black and white is a lot harder than I thought is would be.

This 6 x 6 layout was created by Heidi Bryce, CTMH Independent Consultant. She did an excellent job on this one. Here are her directions:

Split Negative

  • Cardstock - white and black (or any light and dark color that contrasts)
  • Embossing Powder - white and black (or colors that match your color choices)
  • Versamark or embossing ink
  • Heat gun
  1. Cut your cardstock into two equal pieces
  2. Placing the two pieces side by side (do not attach), stamp the image using Versamark or embossing ink dead center of the two pieces.
  3. Emboss the white cardstock with black embossing powder and emboss the black cardstock with white embossing powder (or whatever contrasting colors you are using).
  4. Adhere pieces to background in the same pattern as they were stamped.
  5. If you want your design to stand out more mat each color.
Here is my black and white card using this technique:

I used Warm Wishes and Holiday Accents stamp sets that are both CTMH. I stamped "Warm Winter Wishes inside the card to finish.

Now, it is your turn!
