Welcome to the April Creating Kindness blog hop where we are joined this month by guest designer Linda van Wely-Zwolle. I can't wait to see what she has designed for us with this month's theme - Negative Space. Negative space is created when die cutting or punching a shape from cardstock. The cut out space is your negative. I have used this negative space in two ways on my card.
First off, I used a sponge Brayer to colour my card front in So Saffron ink, Grapefruit Grove ink and finally in Gorgeous Grape ink. Once dry, I die cut the word "You" from the card front. I finished the sentiment with a white heat embossed banner beneath the negative.
I sponged the gorgeous Delightfully Detailed Laser-Cut Specialty DSP with Memento Black ink and adhered to the bottom of my card front, allowing the gorgeous colour on the base to show through the negative spaces of the DSP.
It is my great pleasure to send you on your way to visit Jay Soriano in the UK next! I am a huge fan of Jay's and I am excited to see what he has for us!
