Technique Blog Hop

If you are joining us from Wendy's blog, you are in the right place!
This month we are focusing on using negative images to embellish. This technique is found on page 92 of the new Close to My Heart Idea Book.

Negative images are made with the left overs from a Cricut cartridge cut. When I cut these flowers for another card, I was left with the outline. So, I used them on a fun card for a friend who is having a tough time. I like how you can layer patterns and solids with this method. I am always hesitant to use multiple patterns- this way it is broken up by a solid which makes it easier on my eyes!It would even be fun to stamp in the image.

Now head on over to Michelle's blog to check out her take!
