The Split Negative Technique has been around for a long time. It creates a WOW effect for very little effort. Today, I am bringing back the technique with some variations – and a video too!
The standard split negative divides the image in half vertically as in this sample.
… but you can easily split the image on any angle like this one.
- This technique works on the basis of splitting an image and showing one part of it coloured light on a dark background, and the other part of it coloured dark on a light background. You could use either ink or heat embossing for the image.
- In the sample, I used Whisper White cardstock with Silver Embossing Powder and Gray Granite cardstock with White Embossing Powder.
- For the card, I used Very Vanilla cardstock with Copper Embossing Powder and Soft Suede cardstock with White Embossing Powder.

- There are two ways of creating this technique:
- The easiest is to use the Stamparatus to stamp the entire image over both panels at the same time. Check out how to do this in the video.
- The second way is to stamp full images on both pieces of cardstock and cut them on the same angle. This can be a little tricky lining up the angle and the image on each colour. I much prefer to use the Stamparatus.
Check out my YouTube video for a more details.
I will have some more variations of this technique to show you over the next little while.
