Opposites Attract

Quick post to make it to Challenge #315 at Less is More this week - a one-layer card with the theme: Opposites Attract.

 I just love this image of 'opposites' don't you?  I used my Misti on this card, and when my colouring was finished, I re-stamped with Versafine Onyx black for a sharper edge.  I like the effect - thanks to fellow crafters who have suggested doing this!  Oh, I should mention that on my first attempt, I re-stamped my coloured image, but the paper had just moved a little - oops!  Still, worth a try if you like a defined edge - just ensure your card is back in place carefully.

  1. This is so cute, Ann! I love the idea of short and tall, and the way the girl is reaching up with her balloon towards the giraffe... adorable! Great tip about re-stamping the outline of an image after colouring to keep it crisp (and lining up the paper - just the kind of thing I'd forget!). Thanks so much for playing along with us at Less is More :)

  6. A great opposites theme and thanks for the tip. I think this will be great when using coloured pencils and this certainly dulls the stamped lines.

  7. Gorgeous card Ann! I've also mis-stamped once before when I thought I had lined it up... of course it was a really detailed large image that it happened too, and I had to start again, grrr lol. otherwise I agree, it's a great technique!
