Split Negative Twist


I'm in a split negative swap on one of the MSN groups I'm in (Handmade Cards With Love). I just love this technique. I put my thinking cap on this time and tried to go outside the box by creating a 3 split instead of the usual 2. I am pretty happy with it. I think it looks a very fun card.

I stamped all the images in versamark on black and pixie pink card stock. Then embossed with black on the pink and white on the black. After trimming down the dress to the size I wanted I then made sure that all the pieces were the same size as the dress. I taped them together on the back and mounted them on first white then black card stock. The large piece of pixie pink I put through my cuttlebug with the 'Bloom Dots' folder. Trimmed it to size then wrapped black eyelash fiber around. I put this on my black card base and put my image on top. The flower is a black scallop punch and 2 sizes of hydrangea petals with a gold brad. Because I stamped all three images on both card stock colors I was able to make 2 cards with the alternating images. Please let me know your thoughts.
