NSD Challenge - Negative-town

Yep, I'm going to negative-town and want you to come with me.

I want you to use the negative image of anything you have in your stash or anything you punch, die-cut or whatever your mind thinks up. Put that negative image on a layout or other project and link it here for a chance to win a $10 gift card to Studio Calico.

Just to get your wheels turning, here's an example of what I did (I'll show you the whole layout on Saturday, May 1st). With my Slice die-cut machine, I cut a "3" to the size of 3.5". Instead of using the "3" that popped out, I used the 12x12 piece of my charcoal cardstock and put some punches and other patterned paper behind it. Then, I safely tucked away the charcoal "3" for use later.



Don't forget, this isn't the only challenge going on. Lots of the other DT girls are posting challenges on their blogs and we'll have lots of fun at Studio Calico for National Scrapbooking Day on Saturday, so please plan to join us!



A couple items to note:
  • You can get a head start on my challenge now, but DON'T link to this post. I'll start a new post on Saturday morning with my complete layout for you to link on. Also, you'll want to post your layout in the SC gallery in order to be eligible to win.
  • Feel free to combine my challenge with any of the other gals to increase your chances of winning. I'll post my winner on Sunday, so you'll only have Saturday to link up.

What a fun challenge! I know you're on EST, is it possible for the link-up deadline to be Sat midnight PST? Pretty please? :)

Geralyn, all the challenges will end at midnight EST, that's why we're giving you a few days heads-up :)
