Make A Wish...FTTC148 60

Mona Pendleton | Monday, December 12, 2011 @ 11:00 PM | , , , ,

Hi there! It's time for a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! This week, Makiko is our wonderful hostess and the theme of her challenge is "Opposites Attract". Use the SAME image and make TWO cards/projects with two totally different looks, style theme or colors. For example, you can make a CAS and one with lots of layers, a feminine and a masculine, a monochromatic and a colorful one, one for a child and one for an adult, a birthday and a sympathy, etc. The possibilities are endless. Anyway you think they are totally different or opposite.
I decided to ink up the sweet girl image from Kids Play, (a stamp set that contains various darling silhouette images and endearing sentiments). I thought it would be great to go black and white :)
Here's what she looks like inked up with VersaMark ink and embossed using fine white embossing powder:

and here she is stamped using black ink:
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Sweet Stop sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting!  I hope you take on the challenge and for some awesome inspiration, please be sure to see what the following designers have created: TammyHeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateMona (that's me), Theresa Pollack (December Guest Designer). Please be sure to visit the Flourishes site for COMPLETE details on how to join in on the fun!

Mona, you just did something I always wonder about- how would it look if I used a different color? Your opposites were black and white, which gave a subtly different look to each. What a good idea!
