Timeless Tuesday #148


 It's time for another Timeless Tuesday challenge, and this week Makiko is our hostess with a fun idea.... Opposites Attract!  Make two cards that use the same image, but make them completely opposite!  Maybe one can be clean and simple and the other full of layers and embellishments.  Or one card masculine and the other card feminine.  One card for a child and one for an adult.  One with a colored image, and one with no coloring.  Get the picture?  Whatever you interpret as opposite!

Now for a small disclaimer... don't take MY samples as examples of what to do!  I didn't read the directions closely enough.  My cards are opposites, but I missed the part about using the same image!  Whooops!  But I hope you'll enjoy my version of the challenge anyway!

I just had "opposites" in mind when I started working on the challenge for this week, so my first card shows a sparkly, snowy Winter scene using the Season of Celebrations stamp set.  And my second card....

...shows where I'd rather be right now on a warm, sunny beach!  For this card I used the Beach Life stamp set.  So, you see I did get quite opposite with my creations, but need to improve in reading instructions!  LOL  (Supplies used on both cards are listed down below.)

Please stop over at the Flourishes blog for all the challenge details, and join us!  YOU could be the lucky winner of $10 to spend in the Flourishes online store!

And for more inspiration, please see what the other Timeless Tuesday designers created for today...

These are definitely opposites, Tammy! How fun to see a tropical card right next to a snowy one. Yes, fun, indeed!!

Your cards are certainly totally opposite. Loving that sunny beach scene...beats out the snowy scene.

Anne said...

Both of these cards are wonderful creations.. one for summer and the other for winter.. that is definitely opposites.. (don't worry we have all hurried through the instructions and messed up.. don't feel bad) :) thanks for sharing..

Vickie O'Dell said...

Don't feel bad. I've read too fast before and missed details in the directions. I liked the papers you chose for each card. They were so appropriate for the opposite season or place.

Cheryl said...

I love the way you interpreted the challenge! Both cards are lovely!

Heather said...

You definitely got the opposite part down! Your cards are gorgeous! Love that beach scene. I wish I could be there right now.

Amanda said...

LOL :) Tammy, I actually Love your opposite duo of cards!! When I read the challenge I read it wrong too, and I would have made the same kind of cards too :) I truly love that beach scene ( I Need that set!) and I love the softness of the winter scene! :)
