'Jake skates' at Visible Image

Welcome to another 'Soozie Tooseday' DT day for the wonderful Visible Image.
I'm hoping you already have your entry in for our November challenge 'Make it Sparkle', you only need to have used at least one Visible Image stamp and have the chance of winning £20 worth of stamps of your own choice :)
If you're not already a member of our facebook group then please send a request so that can be rectified and you can join our friendly group and start to share with us your creations :)
Today I'm sharing with you a commissioned order for a work colleagues son made with these superb stamps!

Jake Skates £11.99

To begin I did a reverse negative split image of Jake, which entails of stamping the whole image in versamark and heat embossing in wow black ebony onto white card.
Repeat again onto black card using wow bright white embossing powder.
Then carefully measuring a half way point and cutting both images on the guillotine in exactly the same places and then match up opposing pieces, so you end up with 2 images........
one black and white and white and black!
Secure together with double sided tape and trim.
Add a reverse negative border.
I repeated this process with the 'You Rock' sentiment from 'Max Rocks'
On a piece of white card I used the awesome 'grunge stamp' from the 'Jake skates' set in black soot distress ink, stamped the star onto the same card and repeated, heat embossed in black ebony wow cut out, added some bling.
Attached Jake, the sentiment  and star with sticky pads to add dimension.
Added a skull charm from my treasure chest and finally matted onto black and white card.
I love the reverse negative effect and my creation for next week is the same technique with a Christmas stamp.
Hope you like it and hope to see you again next week.
I really do appreciate all your lovely comments, thank you all :D
