Negative Space Coloring

Happy Monday, Sweet 'n Sassy friends! 
It's Ceal here to share a card with you using a technique I have been wanting to try since I seen Jennifer McGuire use it. The technique is called negative space coloring and there are different ways you can do this technique using different coloring mediums. For my card I masked off the image and used some watercolors but you can also use Copic markers or Distress inks. 
I used the Precious Poppies set which was perfect for this technique. Our Flower Blocks sets would also make a gorgeous card using this technique.
The greeting is from the Keep in Touch, Too set.

This is beautiful, Ceal! Love the colors you used. I've tried that same technique, and it does turn out great results. :) Thanks for sharing this!

Your poppy card is beautiful, Ceal! Love the ombre look of the background and how coloring the negative space makes the image pop.
