Ardyth is hosting the One-Layer Simplicity Challenge for January, and the theme is Attractive Opposites. She made a simply awesome one-layer example that shows LOTS of opposites. I'll wait while you go check out her card.
Are you back?
Okay. Her card was so amazing, I was inspired to sit down today and see what I could do!
Using my new set from Simon Says Stamps called Sunnier Days, I employed a similar "opposite" color scheme as Ardyth--the complementary colors of orange and blue--only in darker shades than she used. On this card, we have wet and dry, outline and block stamps, matte and shimmer (the rain drops were touched with Wink of Stella clear pen!), handwriting and type. The bling is just for fun!
I hope you'll join us at the OLS blog this month for Ardyth's fun challenge! Remember, you may enter as many times as you'd like between now and midnight eastern time on the 24th. On the 28th, the DT will call out the exceptional details that elevate entries from great to totally awesome! It's a little mini-lesson in doing CAS. Don't miss it!
Using my Hoard
This card uses one of my two Wink of Stella pens...the clear one. It gives a very subtle shimmer to the raindrops. I like this Wink of Stella pen, although I'm not sure about buying more colors. I have to play more with it. Comments on the Wink of Stella line?
