TLC414 Play with Balance



Hello everyone.....It's my turn to host the Technique Lover's Challenge on Splitcoast. As stampers and crafters, I'm sure you have worked with your stamps, images, diecuts, etc. to create a balanced design. You don't want an image too big or too small for the space you are decorating. However, if you pair something too big and something too small, you will be actually create balance!!! Soooo, for this weeks challenge we are going to Play With Balance....I want you to use a stamp, image, diecut, etc. too big and one too small to create the perfect scale!!!
1. You can add the small image to the side of the large one or add it right on top
2. You can mix stamped images and diecuts, stickers, or embellies

My card features the large tree stamp from My Cute Stamp's  Owlways Friends set......it was stamped with Ranger's Adirondack Espresso ink and colored with Copics.  The tiny chick Valentine stamp from Demami Design was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa and colored with Copics. A grass Die-namics from MFT's and Wild Wasabi were used for the grass and the sentiment is from the Happy Owlentine Day set from The Craft's Meow. The heart button and twine finish it off. 

Thanks for visiting....come on over to the TLC Challenge on Splitcoast and play along with us...I would love to see what you create!!!!
