Split Negative, FMS#41




Hello, This card was made for my challenge with Lisa.  We decided to do the Split Negative technique.  I have wanted to give this a try for awhile now, and it seemed like a good challenge for Lisa and I.  It was a lot easier than I thought it was going to be, love when that happens.  First I cut out two large squares using my Nesties.  Than I put a little adhesive on the back of the square and lined it up perfectly on my self healing mat, than used my stampa ma jig and stamped on first the green cardstock and embossed it in white.  I repeated the process again on the white cardstock and embossed it in green.  I than laid the 2 squared on top of each other and cut them right down the middle.  They lined up perfectly.  I decided to use the Freshly Made Sketch #41. I also made the card a square one, I don't make square cards very often but the tree stamp just looks better on a square card.  I really had a lot of fun with this technique and have the other halves of the tree's to make another one.  Thanks for looking.
