How to make this card and tag

Cre­ate beau­ti­ful im­ages with the split neg­a­tive stamp­ing tech­nique and pretty, in­tri­cate stamps

Cardmaking and Papercraft - - Stamping -

Split neg­a­tive stamp­ing has been around for a while and is a great tech­nique that en­ables you to do some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent with stamps of both de­tailed and sim­ple de­signs.

Al­though the tech­nique works re­ally well in black and white, it also has a great ef­fect when us­ing other colours of card and inks. The key to get­ting an im­age that will re­ally have a good im­pact is to try to make sure the card colours and ink colours you use are as close to a match as pos­si­ble. This will then cre­ate what should look like a seam­less trans­fer from the pos­i­tive to the neg­a­tive when the stamped im­ages are matched up.

For this set of cards, I used a range of Clar­i­tys­tamps to cre­ate split neg­a­tive top­pers, in­clud­ing de­tailed de­signs made from flo­ral pat­terns, and sim­pler im­ages with stronger out­lines.
