OLS12 - Attractive Opposites
Happy New Year! I wish you all the very best in 2015! We've been having lots of family fun over the last week and while I have sneaked a few peeks at blogland, I haven't had much crafting time. Until yesterday, when I remembered that it's my turn to host this month's One-Layer Simplicity challenge!
I knew I wanted to host an 'opposite' challenge - use as many opposites as you can. I sat down with a piece of white cardstock and the Simon Says Stamp sentiment. I figured black and white would do as a start. But then I started playing around. And look what I did! I sponged the circle using a mask and Salty Ocean and Spiced Marmalade inks. Then I added the tiny dots to get a more festive feel.
So now this card has black and white. Circle (image) and square (card). Little and big (dots). Top and bottom (within the large dot). Blue and orange (opposites on the colour wheel). Curves and straight lines.Thick and thin (text). Print and script. Caps and lowercase. Sponging and stamping. OK, those are not strictly opposites, but that's still a lot packed into this simple little card isn't it?
I hope I've managed to get you thinking about other opposites and that you'll play along with us - you have until January 24th at midnight to link up!
