You are my happy SP&Co Trends Challenge


Hey everyone! Today kicks off a new Trends Challenge over at Scrapmaster's Paradise. This time it was my turn to be hostess and I chose to go with the theme of Negative Space. I love to play with negative space.  Here is my first card:


I started with a 4.25 x 5.50 sheet of cardstock and stamped the new Happy Moments Journaling Frame on the front of my card in the new Ocean Waves ink. I then masked it off and used the the Small Polka Dots Background Stamp in gray. I cut the center of it out using an exacto knife and then I lightly traced the inside of it onto my card front so that I new where to stamp.

I masked off everywhere around my rectangle on the front of my card and then stamped the Circletastic Background in Flamingo Pink. I didn't want the pink to be really bright so I first stamped it off on a piece of scrap paper and then stamped it onto my card front. Here is a close up of it. I love the softness that the SP&Co chalk inks give off when you use this stamping technique.  I stamped my title, that comes with the Happy Moments stamp set and stamped it directly onto the chalk ink background.
I added some gray twine used a Sizzix butterfly I had in my stash and attached it to the front of my first card piece. I then added pop dots to the 4.25 x5.50 stamped cardstock and attached it to the front of my card.
I hope you will choose to play along with us. I will be back tomorrow with another negative space card. Thanks so much for stopping by!
