C4C419 Opposites

Good morning friends

It's Saturday and that means a new challenge at the Crazy 4 Challenges blog. Our hostess is Frances Byrne, and our Guest Designer is  Elena Anderson . This is Frances' challenge:  Did you know that the 25th January is Opposite Day ... For our challenge this week make a card/project that has opposites on it. Think opposite colors, on the color wheel, stripes and polka dots, black and white, mirror image, etc.

I almost didn't have time to make a card for this week. Usually I'm able to work ahead but with travel and houseguests - this one almost got away from me. I really get a lot of use out of my Blueprints dies from MFT Stamps, so pulled out Blueprints #29 for my card today.

I started out with the white hearts on a red background, and the red hearts on a white background for the OPPOSITE part of the challenge. Then I went with other patterned paper in the stack to finish off the card.

Here is a peek at the inside - unfortunately the water colour bled a little. It was too late at night and the lighting wasn't good - I should have left it til the morning. Ahh well. These things happen.

While I had everything out, I went ahead and used the same Blueprints die set and some different patterned papers and stickers from my stash to make a second Valentine.

I popped the stickers up on foam tape, and went over portions with a glaze pen so they are raised and shiny.

The inside features a 'cut apart' from the same paper stack, and a butterfly sticker ...

... which has foil accents on it. The heart above the Happy is also foiled.

Finally, here is a look at the two Valentine's side by side.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd  love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C419.
