Thanks for the fun challenge Dawn, to use a negative die. Well I didn't have a die so to speak, so I printed out a digi, cut around the image and used that as my die or negative image. (put the image in my photo cuz it was just too cute not to!)
I was also inspired by this card of our new QFTD who is Shirley, wannabcre8tive. Her card was perfect for today's negative challenge......briefly what I did...
As I mentioned, printed out the digi then cut it out. Used the negative part for my card. Did the bandanna technique. I stamped the images in black clear eb'ing them. Sponged on barn door red then painted on the white highlights.
Did faux stitching around the edges and image adding a tiny thin jute bow and four brads in the corners. Put this on a black card. Done.
Well Shirley enjoy your reign as QFTD, Dawn thanks again for a fun challenge. Have a great weekend everyone!...TFL :0)

Wow, I am loving this. The bandana technique is one I am going to have to check out. Your image is adorable and I love how you stitched around the negative. Thanks, so much for playing along and making my reign even more special.
