Howdy Partner


I like to try new techniques in my card-making. Therefore when I saw a card swap for Split Negative cards (hosted by Viv - blusky over on Splitcoast Stampers) I promptly signed up.

I do like a challenge - and this has certainly been one. After many failed attempts, I finally decided this one was at least acceptable.

It features the cute little cowboy from the retired Stampin' UP! Cowboy Kid stamp set. The split negative effect is done using the retired Stampin' UP! Pretty Paisley background stamp.

The colors are all Stampin' UP! Bashful Blue. Whisper White. Kraft. Black.

The coloring was done with my brand new Copics.

I never thought to do the split negative technique as the background rather than the main image. What a great idea, makes for a super card!!

What a great fold. I think you did a fabulous job and I couldn't tell that you struggled at all. This must be a very old set because I don't remember ever seeing this cutie cowboy. Great job and great colors and coloring of your image.
