Split Negative Technique with a difference

I saw this idea on Pinterest and had to try it with the beautiful large Sunflower image from Celebrate Sunflowers. I call it the Split Negative with a spotlight look.

Card 1:

Card 2:

  • It is quick and easy to create two cards.
  • Cut a piece of Smoky Slate 9.5cm x 13.8cm and then cut it diagonally from top right to bottom left.
  • Repeat with a piece of Shimmery White.
  • Use Tear & Tape Adhesive to join a piece of the white to a piece of the Smoky Slate on the back across the diagonal.
  • Stamp image across the joined piece using the Stamparatus.
  • Colour the part of the image on the white using Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers.
  • Stamp a sentiment along the base of the white part.
  • Attach to card base and add some embellishments (Bumblebee Trinkets and Lady Bug Trinkets used here).
  • Add some Wink of Stella to the coloured part of the image.
  • Supplies:
    • Stamp Set: Celebrate Sunflowers
    • Cardstock: Just Jade, Balmy Blue, Smoky Slate, Shimmery White, Basic White
    • Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Stampin’ Blends: Just Jade, Bronze, Daffodil Delight, Old Olive, Mango Melody
    • Accessories: Wink of Stella, Lady Bug Trinkets, Bumblebee Trinkets, Polished Dots

Here is a video that I made a few years ago using the split negative technique with heat embossing – yet another way to showcase the technique..
