JustRite Friday Challenge #079 - "Opposites Attract"

This week's challenge over at the JustRite blog is to use the color wheel and create a project using opposite, or complimentary, colors. I have to admit that I originally intended to skip this week. I wasn't immediately inspired. But then I played with my FarmHouse Paper Company Sugar Hill collection. And revisited the JustRite blog post. Then, I came up with this...
I started with a 4x4 Stretched Canvas from Canvas Corp then stamped the JustRite Chevron Stripe Background onto the yellow paper from the FarmHouse Paper Company Sugar Hill 6x6 paper pad. Next, I cut a little banner (also using paper from the Sugar Hill 6x6 pad) and tied some twine around the top, finishing it off with a button. I stamped the title, Give Thanks, using the JustRite Autumn Words stamp set then cut it out using my Spellbinders Ribbon Banner die template. Using the new Spellbinders Fall Foliage die templates, I cut various leaves and pinecones from the Sugar Hill 6x6 paper pad, embossed, stenciled/inked them and added them to my canvas. Here's a closer look...
I really like how it turned out and think I will add it to my entry table this Fall. You still have a little time if you wish to participate in this week's challenge. Check out all the details HERE. Photobucket
