I came across a post on Moxie Fab World regarding asymmetry with card design. I am so interested in this "balance" that seems to come second nature to a lot of stampers out there in blogland, and something I completely struggle with! I want this to be "my second nature". So, I made a card to play along in the challenge, and get started practicing this design element.
Dynamic Duos #18 - Limeade and Red Hot. I played a few weeks back in this challenge and totally made up my own rule to add a 3rd color -- whoops. :) You can only add a NEUTRAL. [Big difference I guess huh?] And, because I didn't trust myself to be able to "balance" my card I used the sketch from over at Chupa's.
I can "see" the balance on this sketch, and I really do love the layered clustered effect.
So, what do you all think? Does my card have that "feels balanced" effect I really want to master, or, did I cheat by using the sketch? Either way, I am linking this card to the Asymmetry Challenge. I really want the offered Card Design magazine. Now this one I believe can teach me important stuff about creating my cards!
I continued to perused around the ole Moxie Fab Blog and realized Cath has challenges in dealing with designing from the articles in the Card Design magazine. [I am so getting this magazine!]. I decided to try 2 more of the design a card elements along with Moxie Minty which is ending Monday.
Lighthearted Wishes, I made this fun card. I hope I did it correct by using the brackets to really make your eyes focus in on the light bulb. The font is so perfect with this cute image. :)
Sun-Kissed Autumn STV Kit for this card.
Assorted Greetings, Lacey Borders and a mint colored flourish from PTI. A very simple, yet I feel, elegant card.
Okay I am back at stamping. I have 5 more recoup weeks, so I am hoping to really get into blogland and play in some new challenges. This Moxie day was very entertaining for me. I am asking for constructive feedback, so please I appreciate any responses whether you feel I accomplished the challenge, or maybe, not so much. Or, you like my cards -- I have missed comments being in the hospital got me all out of touch with blogland and fellow bloggers. I missed you all~
Thanks so much for stopping by~
