Negative Space

I saw a few cards on Pinterest that used negative space for the design technique.  I thought they looked interesting and thought I would give them a try.  I used all new In-Color 2012-2014 colors for my cards.  They all start with the same base, a 5 1/2 by 4 1/4 piece of card stock with a matching tone on tone piece 5 by 3 3/4inches.  I then cut 5 pieces of Whisper White 4 3/4 by 3 1/2.   I played around with some punches, sizzlits and framelits to make the negative space areas. 

















  I also added a scored border around the cards for some texture, and popped the white paper up with dimensionals.
