Negative Text Effect
I want to accomplish a text effect that I assumed would be pretty simple, but I'm having trouble figuring it out. I want the text on my layer to react in negative to the layers underneath. I set the layer to "Divide" but it doesn't affect the entire word. Check out the attachment to see what I mean. The text, "Desirae" is on the layer "lettering" and is set to Divide.

All I want to accomplish is for the word to be readable against the black and white. Of course, I could do this manually by having two layers with two different halves of the word, but I'd rather know how to do this for future's sake.
