My technique class this month is focusing on “negatives;” so, I thought I’d use this week’s Pals Paper Arts challenge to try a split image design. I love participating in challenges; they prompt me to use colors and layouts I’d probably never choose on my own. This week’s color challenge is a perfect example of that, I was excited about coupling the split image with Strawberry Slush for a dramatic pop; but, I was concerned the Pear Pizazz would not add the desired contrast – I was wrong! I’m quite happy with this color combination and with the way the Basic Black DSP accents the card as a whole.
To accomplish the split image, I simply laid my Whisper White and Basic Black side by side and stamped the image with VersaMark; then I embossed using black embossing powder on the Whisper White and white embossing powder on the Basic Black. That’s all there is to it!
