Split Negative Technique

Last week, Mary Rindal posted the third recycle challenge on Stampin' Addicts using a technique that I've never done before: Split the Negative.  This is a fun technique and the original directions on Stampin' Addicts that Debbi Silberberg posted there make it easy peasy. This is what I came up with:

Colors: Smoky Slate, Whisper White, and Crushed Curry.  Stamps: Beautifully Baroque and Delightful Dozen.  Accessories: Versamark, Rhinestone Jewels, Smoky Slate and White Embossing Powder.
I kept the card itself very simple and let the technique speak for itself.  You'll see that my image isn't split exactly in half, we'll just pretend that was intentional. With all the colored embossing powder Stampin' Up! offers now, there is no reason to limit this technique to just Black and White.  I was picturing a fun Christmas card with Cherry Cobbler and White.

If you don't have time to play along with the challenge, you can still help with the challenge.  Head over to Pinterest and like and repin your favorites.  The player who gets the most repins and likes gets to pick the next challenge.

Great job with the challenge! This looks really cool not split exactly in half. Nice color choice, too.
