Today's Manic Monday challenge is titled "Bi-Polar" - all about opposites - and a fabulous example has been created by Black Kitten.
My entry features Mr Poe from the Smeared Ink "Quoth the Raven" rubber set as the main image. I also used the raven image from Rick St Dennis for my base paper. The elements on my fatbook page are all taken from the "Tic-Tac-Poe" grid from the challenge at Quoth The Raven challenge blog.
First up - the base paper. The RSD raven image was manipulated in a graphics program so that it, and it's mirror image were tiled before printing. Love the way the raven images form a heart shape like this.
Then the Smeared Ink Mr Poe was stamped on both black and white card, fussy cut out and cut, roughly, in half. The full image then re-constructed using one piece from each colour. The white ink on the black started to go grey, being absorbed into the black I think, so I painted over with acrylic paint and added some texture in the process.
Some black and white tulle was stitched together and pleated. The join being covered by stitching on some black satin ribbon. There's another opposite The male EAP has been dressed as a girl, lol.
Some black and white lace and a couple of feathers before our leading character, and that's all the elements of that grid covered.
