Love the Negative

You have to make yourself love the negative in life sometimes! Besides, without a negative there would be no positive right?! Anyway, over at the Moxie Fab World they are celebrating the release of Card Creations Volume 11 with some challenges.
 This one is to Emphasize the Negative.  You always have a negative when die cutting on any machine, and sometimes it's nice to use the negative as I did on this Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers butterfly die. I've been wanting to do this on a card for awhile, and now is the perfect time! I let the die cut hang over the edge of my cardstock to sort of cut part of it off. I like that look. Then I die cut another butterfly in a coordinating cardstock to make it stand out. All of the 'stamped' images are digtial, as well as the background paper that I made in My Digital Studio from Stampin' Up!. Here is a close up of my use of the negative die cut.
Thanks for taking time to stop by today!

Fun technique, Pam! LOVE the way your negative image protrudes the front panel! And your color palette is so full of sunshine!
