Color Opposites

The third VSN Mini challenge is a color wheel challenge – use colors that are opposite on the wheel!

I made two cards! Here is the first:

When you look at a color wheel, there are 3 basic opposite pairings: red/green, orange/blue, and yellow/purple. Anytime I pair red/green I think Christmas, so I went with it!

To create this (and the next) card, I drew a light line on the card and aligned the square blocks. I eyeballed the space between the blocks.

Here is the second card, using a yellow/purple combo:

I chose a few different stamps from the set, but tried for ones that all included thick lines. I knew I wanted the sentiment to be the purple color, so I stamped the images alternating colors, starting with yellow.

Thanks for taking a peek!
