Craft Challenge #72 - Opposites Attract - Entries Due Mar 1 - Mar 8

04/02/12 -- Winner Announced!

Our winner has been selected!!
Congrats to ecstatic_spider for her amazing entry titled, "Snow White/Evil Queen"!



Check out the blog featuring ecstatic_spider here!



03/08/12 -- It's time to vote!

View all of the entries on this board! Smiley  

One vote per member.  If cheating of any sort is detected, the applicable entry and votes will be disqualified.




03/01/12 -- It's time to enter!

To post your entry, please click NEW TOPIC on this board! Smiley  
Entries must be posted by Mar 8 11:59:59 PDT 2012.

If you are a new member, and cannot post images yet, please just post a direct link to your image(s) in your post.  A friendly neighborhood Moderator will come along and update your post to embed the image(s) for you.

This month, your challenge is to create a project of opposites!  Your project should have two sides/ways to be viewed, each which represent an opposite feature, illustration, design, etc.

This fabulous challenge idea is brought to you by Knickertwist on the Craft Challenge Theme Idea suggestion board.  Her original suggestion contains some great inspiration ideas and examples:

...something that has two sides, can be turned inside-out, upside-down, or back-to-front, to reveal an opposite.

Soooo, you could have a two sided embroidery hoop. One side might have a lovely granny worthy cross stitch but when you flip it over there's something rather naughty on the reverse.

Maybe you have a reversible skirt that's white with black polka-dots on one side and black with white stripes on the other.

Or perhaps you have a topsy-turvy doll that is Harry Potter held one way and Voldemort when upside down.

The possibilities for this challenge are endless!  Think of all things that are reversible and all of the amazing opposites that could be represented.

Good luck and happy crafting!

Rules:

  • Craft your project during this challenge period (Feb 6 2012 - Mar 8 2012) only.  Projects created before this timeframe will be moved to the Holidays board and excluded from the voting poll.
  • On Mar 1 2012 there will be a special folder created for entries.  Post your entry on the specified entry board during the period of Mar 1 - Mar 8 11:59:59 PDT 2012.  No sooner.  No later.
  • Voting will happen from Mar 9 - Mar 18 2012.
  • Enter only ONE project.  Your entry can have multiple components to it.
  • If cheating of any sort is detected, the said entry and votes will be disqualified.

Originality:

It's probably impossible to know whether your project is 100% original, has never been posted on Craftster, or made by anyone else in the past.  But if your project was definitely inspired by something you've seen before, please give credit to that project. Smiley

Prizes:

At the end, I'll set up a poll right here and the first place winner (US or non-US) will get:

(1) their project in the Featured Projects area
(2) their project in the Craftster Blog
(3) and a prize from us at Craftster.org -- any one item from one of Craftster's online shops!

And here I just made a reversible piece of wall art for the Sherlock Holmes swap! Well, that wouldn't have counted for this anyway, the two sides weren't opposite in style. This is a fun idea for a challenge, I must admit.
