Hi all Vicki here from All I Do Is Stamp.  Today I am showing you Negative Space Coloring.  I was drawn to this technique because all of us aren’t artists, and this is another way to “pretend” we are. 😉

Here is the finished card:


What do you think?  Pretty isn’t it?  I think so. 🙂

Step 1; Cut a small panel, stamp your image [I used Spring Bouquet] with versamark, and emboss.  [I used gold embossing powder]

Step 2

Step 2; Make a mask with post-it paper, making sure you have part of the image on the “sticky” part.

Step 3

Step 3; Sponge on your ink.  [I used Distressed inks since they blend so beautifully.]

Step 4; Here is the completed negative colored panel.

Step 4

I went on to complete my card with some stitched framing, and a sentiment from Chalkboard Birthday.

Finished close

I have to admit, I am loving this way of showing off the gorgeous images from IBS.  An artist I am not, a pretend artist, yep, I am!

An artist or not, I hope you try this fun technique!  Feel free to load it in Joanna’s Facebook Group, Inspired By Stamping Art Class.

See you next month~
