'Valentine's Rose'

Hi everybody, I hope you're all fine and well today.

I thought i'd have another practice blog to get ready for Sincerely Yours Creations blog which kicks off on Valentines day, not long to wait at all :D there's also an open group on facebook , so if you're already not a member then please come and join us, we're all a very friendly bunch :-)

Ok todays blog is an idea I got from Craft stampers March Issue to do a 'split negative image', they used a silhouette stamp but I didn't have one so thought i'd play with the large rose from the Immortal love stamp set at Visible Image, this is one of my many favourites but all their stamps are fab....i'm a little bit addicted to them! I really am very pleased with the outcome!
Check out their Visible Image Love Challenge :-)
The sentiment used is the 'I Love You' sentiment from More than Words, set 14 also Visible Image...these are amazing sentiments and give you a clean crisp image every time and the beauty being is you can pick which greetings you want, avoiding buying pre-packaged sets that you'd never use half of, you can mix and match! Genius Idea!

 I used 2 small pieces of cardstock, black and white, firstly covering the image with versamark then stamped onto the black card and embossed in wow sparkling snow glitter From wow and repeated this step onto white card with Heat it up - black sparkle.
'Carefully' cutting each image in half and  piece together, then matted on black and white cardstock and red mirror card and VOILA!
Looks rather fab i think!
I used the sparkling snow on black card for the 'I love you' sentiment.

Thanks very much for dropping by guys, hope you enjoyed my blog and I hope you have lots of fun doing your 'split negative image'.....i'm going to be doing lots more thats for sure :D

Oh and last but by no means least......a HUGE thank you to all my followers, you're ace and if i'm not following you yet, I WILL be soon, im just not getting the option!!!! its probably my bad but i'll work it out eventually.....i'm sure! Maybe! :D
