Mixed Media Monday - Opposites


The new theme on Mixed Media Monday is "opposites", chosen by the talented new guest host, Beth. Beth was thinking contrasts, dark and light, yin and yang, male and female, old and young, that sort of thing. Things are still hectic here at my house, with my daughter still recovering from being hit by a car. So I thought I'd just grab some time to make an ATC for this week's challenge. I immediately thought of black and white, with another, bright colour as an extra contrast and to punch it up a little. Perhaps a little boring, but all I could manage for this fun theme this week.

Diane, this is just beautiful. It definitely illustrates why I like stark contrasts and opposites. It's stunning.
