This is one of the cards we made at November Technique Club and I think most of the ladies were surprised at how easy it really is. To create the Split Negative, cut a piece of Basic Black and Whisper White cardstock to the same size and then wipe with the Embossing Buddy. I always recommend using the Embossing Buddy when you are doing high contrast embossing - it helps prevent all those stray pieces of embossing powder. Then place the Basic Black and Whisper White butted up to each other on Grid Paper or whatever you use for your stamping surface. Stamp the image in VersaMark ink onto the two pieces of cardstock. Cover the Basic Black piece in White Embossing Powder and heat to set. Cover the Whisper White piece in Black Embossing Powder and heat to set. Then put them back to together! I like to mat them onto a contrasting mat to emphasize the technique.
