SSCB23- Use up those paper scraps!!

Used up my scraps and did a little color blocking while I was playing!! Here's the tutorial on Splitcoaststampers.... adhere all your scrap paper strips onto cardstock, mine was 5 1/4 by 4. I did this in a horizontal pattern but, you could do it on the diagonal for another fun combo! Then pick out a fun die/one of your favs... I chose this fabulous heart from Serendipity stamps. Die cut the heart into the paper scraps panel.... now you have both the negative and positive to play with.... which is exactly what I did :-)

Both together...

Here's the negative ....
Here's the positive...
Oooops! Did I get the positive/negative backwards? Isn't that a fabulous heart die... big and bold!! Use some Authentique Lovely papers from last year... they still make me smile!! The sentiment is perfect in scroll script... also from Serendipity.
