Split Love

I know it's a terribly bad heading, but the technique I'm showing you today is called 'Split Negative' and I just happen to have displayed it on a love heart. I'm not exactly how to describe this technique in words - especially when the picture shows it so well.

Basically, what I've done is stamped two images. On the first image, I've chosen one colour cardstock and another colour ink. Then, with the second stamped image, I've simply reversed those colours. The stamped images are then cut in half, and lined up perfectly to create the whole image again using half of the first stamped image and half of the second stamped image.
