Video How to Color Negative
Birthday Celebration Blog Candy

Hello Friends 
  Today card is how to color the negative of a card so in short is you color all the outside of the stamp image. If you notice in the catalog we do NOT have black embossing powder anymore but in the video I will teach you a alternative to have black emboss image. I use the archival black ink and emboss with clear powder VOILA you have a black emboss image. Yes archival ink is perfect to emboss. I have all the list at the bottom for all 3 cards and I will list below each card the color that I sue to color. 

Measurement are 
-Whisper White card base 8½ x 5½ fold in half or 11 x 4¼ score at 5½ fold in half 
-layer basic black or Pear Pizzazz 5¼ x 4 
-Shimmer White 5 x 3¾

  1. Vous n'agez plus, vous vous ameliorez!

    Not sure if that translated correctly, but I meant to say -

    You're not getting older, you're getting better!!!

  2. I love spending my morning with you AND coffee!

  3. Happy Birthday!

    Thanks for the chance to win something!

  4. Happy Birthday. Thanks for sharing this technique.

  5. Good Morning Frenchie, I hope you had a great day yesterday. I love the first card color combo. Will definitely be trying this technique...Ann in Canada

  6. Wow, this is a neat technique.
    It really makes the flower stand out.

  7. I love your cards and your creative ideas.
    Wishing you a very Happy 50th Birthday filled with many Blessings now and in the future.

  8. How fun is that?! What a creative way to show off yet another technique! This is so wonderful and can't wait to play and try it out! Thanks, Frenchie and Happy 50th again! Celebrate YOU!

  9. Like the technique. You could probably still color the flower or maybe use wink of Stella inside the flower or even glitter. Will after to try this.

  10. Love it, France.
    Hope you had a great birthday!

  11. Great thinking to use black ink with clear embossing powder! I've used that flower many times, "You've Got This", stamp set. I've stamped that flower with bleach & have offset the stamped image slightly with a colored ink, using the stamp positioner. I'm thinking a person could use any color ink with the clear embossing powder, yes?? I've even fussy cut the flower & used dimentionals to pop it up. Thanks, Frenchie, & have a great birthday celebration! You're only 50 once!

  12. Sunday morning Blessings and a big thank you for another great card. Hope you are still enjoying a Happy Birthday.

  13. Love the cards! Most people want 2 receive gifts on there birth date, so this is really nice of you!!!
