So Bad It’s Good

This month’s Simply B Stamps’ Fan Page challenge is Good v Evil featuring one of two awesome mermaids drawn by the uber talented Betty, Roxie the Good and Spika the Bad.  The challenge was to choose one and then do a “goodie goodie cheery … or a dark and bad as can be” project.  I decided to combine them both.

As you can see I mirrored each side of the double twisted easel card I made, one side light and cheery the other dark and moody.  I did the same with the colouring, same base colours but different shades and tones to give the right effect.

This card has gone to a friend for her birthday and she loved it, it’s kinda big and showy like her!
