Country View Crafts Challenges - Opposites

Happy May!

One if the super talented design team over at Country View Crafts, Teresa,  has chosen 'Opposites' as the theme for the month.  At first I was a bit stumped, but then I got my thinking cap on and came up with loads of ideas.

Here is my first project for the month

My opposites here are 'light' and 'dark'.

I had so much fun I forgot to take photos as I was creating!

The background was created using PaperArtsy Infusions in Sleight Blue.  I never bore of Infusions - I love the colours that each little bottle carry.

The Tim Holtz Sizzix Filament die was die cut in black and white.  The white was coloured using Distress Inks.  I added a bit of sparkle using a Gelly Roll pen to give it a bit of extra 'light'.

To finish, I added a Tim Holtz phrase.

So, there you have it.  My first project for the 'Opposites' challenge.

Make sure you pop over to the blog to see the amazing inspiration this month.  I hope that I have also inspired you to join in with the challenge.  Don't forget that you might be in with a chance of winning a gift voucher to spend in the online shop!

Happy crafting!
