MFT Stamps Summer School Session 3 – Lesson 13 Design: Hard vs. Soft

Well, I’m half way through this session of My Favorite Things Stamps Summer School.

This is Lesson 13 on Design: Hard vs. Soft, which they define like this:

For every hard line or edge you place on a card, the design is balanced by some softness, whether it be from a texture (like a ribbon) or a shape (like a circle); too much hard or soft might not work.
.
Here’s my card where the hard bricks, doghouse, fire hydrant and sandpaper lane are offset by the soft felt grass, dog, balloon and twine string.
