Use the negative at Seize the Birthday

Hi there!

For the following 2 weeks at Seize the birthday , we ask you to be a bit negative.

.... Not really, please be happy and always see the bright side, but show us how creative you can use negative space in your design!

If you don't want to use the additional topping, please feel free to link up any newly created birthday card.

I kept my design very simple, with a little cut out window to showcase my sentiment:




I used a digi stamp and opened it in my Silhouette programme, used the trace , off set, and print and cut function.

I partially colored the plait with a red marker.

I added my own sentiment on the inside .

I can't wait to see what you create for our challenge the coming 2 weeks!

Thanks for looking.

Hallo, vrou, ja jy wonder seker of ek erens van die aardbol afgespring het, maar ek sukkel net om by almal uit te kom terwyl ek so besig is met 'n klomp ander projekte!!!!! Ek stel nou al hoe lank uit om weer 'n slag by jou uit te kom, maar aanmekaar is daar iets anders wat gedoen moet word!!!! Ek vra GROOT verskoning, hoor!!! Ek laat jou nou net gou weet dat ek hier is en hopelik voor die einde van die dag behoorlik by jou gaan kuier!!! Maar vanmiddag is dit nou weer beurtkrag ook nog, so van 2 tot half 5 sal ek sit en hekel en baie gefrustreed wees oor ek nie op die rekenaar kan besig wees nie!!!! Ek kom so gou ek weer 'n kansie het inloer om te kyk na al jou pragtige skeppings wat ek nog nie gesien het nie, hoor - moet nou eers weer hardloop, want die kinders kom nou uit die skool uit!!!
Groete vrou, hopelik kan ek later lekker kuier by jou!!!

So nice to see you pop up in my mailbox! No doubt about it, you're genius with your Silhouette! Loving the bold red 'medallion' image you created! And of course....loving all the white space!

Petra Swart said...

Daai raampie wat jy net so een kant ingekleur het, is so effektief, vrou!!!! Weer 'n pragtige graphic feel en die rooi randjie buite-om rond dit pragtig af!!!!
Groete!!

Soos altyd het ek my kuiertjie by jou soooo geniet vrou!!!! Ek kan maar net weer se dat jou talent eenvoudig geen grense het nie en dat jy my keer op keer verstom!!!! Jy is voorwaar 'n inspirasie!!!!
Geniet die naweek!!!!!
