The Keys to Her Caged Heart

I’ve been saving my “negative spaces” lately with the intention of playing around with them, some Luminarte products and who knows what else. Well, figured today was as good as day as any to just sit and play and see what happens.

Pretty rare when I don’t have a plan when I sit down to create, so this was a new experience for me. But a fun experience I must say!

I started with a circle negative space and brushed Harvest Sol Silk over it. I waited for it to dry and then used another negative space that fit inside the circle and brushed some Indian Copper mica powder mixed with multi-medium gloss over that (next time I’ll use more contrasting colors). Next I took my Jet Black Archival ink and stamped with the Prima Keys stamp to create a pattern.

Next I cut out my shiny fun circle with nestabilities and then finished my card using Her Caged Heart from Carmen Medlin for SCACD. After I finished my card I thought of a million other things I should’ve/could’ve done--anyone else do that? I have lots of other ideas rolling around for my negative spaces so stay tuned..hehe!

Wonderful card, Danni! I really like the background you made with the negative space. I frequently think of things I wish I had done when I am finished with a card. The good thing about that is that it often gives me a new idea to try.

Danni- this really is beautiful! Love the layers your used and way you created your background circle. However, more than that, you pulled everything together. This is truly stunning~!

Very cool, Danni! I very rarely have any plan when I sit down to create:)

Whoa! Pretty! Love the old world vintage feel you created.
I have tons of negatives that I try to use for frames, but using them as stencils is a wonderful idea. This turned out fabulous.!
