So Negative!

It's Tuesday and that means a new challenge from the DCRU DT! This week Diane is our challenge hostess...make a card, LO, or altered project and use a negative. A negative is the paper you have left after cutting something out, like the stencil of what's left. I'm sure everyone has throw away scraps of paper in their stash where they have cut images out...now you can put them to good use.
Here's my card:



I used American Crafts Stamps, Cuttlebug & Swiss Dots folder, Colorbok and Core'dinations papers, MS ink, Copics, and the negative from Spellbinder Nestabilities - scalloped circle.
I simply found a piece of paper big enough to "almost" cover the front of my card and then ran it thru my Cuttlebug using my Nestie. I then used the negative as a window and made a little tree behind it and added yellow paper. I cut out my stamped imagies and used pop up tape to make it look like the brances were coming out of the window.
Now it's your turn! Visit Die Cuts R Us DT Blog to see all the amazing DT creations and be sure to play along!
Enjoy!
