Opposites Attract- Heart 2 Heart Challenges

Welcome to this weeks challenge at {Heart 2 Heart Challenges}.

Opposites Attract this week. You can choose opposite colors, seasons, or are your family members complete opposite. We want to see your take on this, however that may be.

I had the idea of using silver and gold immediately when I heard this challenge. I even had this picture be my inspiration over on Pinterest. But making it into a working project was difficult. I knew what I wanted, but couldn't see the final project in my head. I still am not sure how I feel about this card. But it is nice for it to be done and able to work on a new project. I was going to use texture paste, but couldn't get the bold silver and gold look like a wanted. I tried embossing powders, but couldn't get a clean look to it.

So here is the troublesome project.

The hexagons are leftover parts when I made the stencil, #M45C8C. I use presentation covers you can buy at office supply stores for my stencils. They made a thicker, good quality stencil. But they aren't meant to be colored, unlike the acetate you can buy for drafting in arts supply store. So I took a nail file and roughed them up so I could color them. I used our metallic markers. I left some clear ones to use. Liquid glass holds them down. I tried to spread it out as much as possible so it wasn't as visible on the clear ones,but it's as good as it's going to get. I could have tried using my Xyron, if I knew where it was. That might have worked better, but you can't use what you don't have, or can't find. 

Mr, &, and  Mrs are cut from my Explore using our glitter paper using font from Artbooking and Art Philosophy. Believe it or not, but I used the same paper for both. It is silver glitter, and I turned mr and mrs to gold using ShinHan markers in yellow.

I hope you play along with us this week at {Heart 2 Heart}. You must use some sort of Close To My Heart product. So if you need some, go to {}, then come back to play. You have all month to play along.
