Do Opposites Attract?

It’s time for another challenge from Crazy 4 Challenges. This week was to use opposites. There were so many options it actually made it a bit harder than some other weeks. Too many options can be overwhelming right? LOL!!

I finally settled on opposite colours and patterns. While not exactly true opposites, I thought that bright colours vs neutrals and a random, organic pattern vs a very linear, graphic pattern worked pretty well for this challenge. The floral paper is from a Simon Says Stamp kit from last year and the striped pattern is actually cut from a sheet of washi paper.

The sentiment was cut from both pink and black cardstock which I had attached to some cheap white cardstock as a base. That way I didn’t have to piece the two colours afterwards. I added some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the Hello. A few sequins, including a spliced one which helped emphasize the opposite theme, finished this card. There are a few clear gems you can’t see too. That part looks much better IRL.

We at C4C all hope that you can play along! It’s a really fun challenge right? Big and small, high and low, black and white, opposites on the colour wheel, light and dark, north and south, land and sea, earth and space, old and young, there are so many possibilities!

Enjoy, Rebecca

Hi! I’m a disabled SAHM of three wonderful boys. Married since 1997 to Tim. I love crafts, creating art, sewing, needlework, making jewelry, reading, watching movies and snuggling with my fat tabby cat, Jesse. My boys are all on the autism spectrum so it’s a chaotic but fun life. I live in a small town north-east of Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It’s in the middle of corn fields and horse farms while still feeling like a suburb.
