digging negative space

I've been looking at the "Negative Space" 2018 trend for my STAMPlorations spotlight posts this month. When I saw this design from Lydia E. I had to CASE it, concentrating on the negative space to pop the positives to the forefront.

Hero Arts All Occasion Messages set
Altenew inks

I decided to create two versions, one for the January Altenew challenge using those spring colors.


And a sympathy card keeping things monochromatic. I like the heat embossed sentiment topped with vellum.


I'm taking this card to Danipeuss Kartenchallenge # 60 Anything Goes as well as The Artistic Stamper Anything Goes.  And to Penny Black and More where the January theme is Something New - which this stamp set was to me for Christmas!

Both gorgeous, Maria ... love how the colours mimic the sentiments ... me too about the vellum sentiment overlay on the second ... it adds a wonderful softness! Hugs, Anita :)
