Mod Squad Challenge -Positively Negative

Dear Ones~
This week over at The Mod Squad Challenge it is my great good pleasure to be the host. For the challenge I have chosen the technique Positively Negative. My challenge is for you to create 2 different images, one light and one dark, then cut them in half and connect the POSITIVE and the NEGATIVE together. Confused? Read on, it will all become clear.

The sponsor this week is Gina K Designs and Stamp TV
Stamp TV is a free online community featuring card making, stamping techniques and project videos for paper crafters using stamps and other products by Gina K. Designs. Be sure to check out StampTV for a ton of great videos and techniques. They also have weekly challenges. Shop Gina K Designs.

 Here is my first example:
As you can see, I stamped the feather from the Gina K Designs stamp set Fine Feathers on white card stock with Gina K Designs Blue Lagoon Ink. Then I stamped it again on Blue Lagoon card stock with Versamark and heat embossed with white powder. I then cut each image in half and attached the positive (white card stock) to the negative (Blue Lagoon) card stock. The patterned paper is from Gina K Designs Here Comes the Sun patterned paper pack.
Here are the Ingredients:
GKD Black Onyx, White and Blue Lagoon Card Stock
GKD Here Comes the Sun Patterned Paper
GKD Fine Feathers Stamp Set
Versamark Ink
GKE White Embossing Powder

And here is my next example:
Same steps with the stamps here. For this card I used an older Gina K Designs butterfly stamp from the set called Birthday Blessings. Inks and card stock are Gina K Designs Red Hot. The patterned paper is again from the Here Comes the Sun patterned paper.
