Default WT196 - The Half-baked challenge

lol I couldn't have planned this challenge for a crazier day! No phone, no internet is what I woke up to! I'm finally somewhere where I can get internet. Sorry for the delay ladies!

Now...the half-baked challenge. LOL What on earth is that you may be saying!?!!! Well...you may think this challenge is half-baked when you find out what it is. I DO hope you'll play along though and have some fun with it.

A few month ago I was browing a magazine and I came across an ad. Half the page was type and details and the other half was one large photo of a baby that had been cropped to just HALF the image. It was a beautiful clean look that got me thinking about just stamping half an image. Your brain fills in the rest. And so...I'm challenging you to find WAYS TO USE HALF AN Image or embellishment. Tell us what you did. If you're stuck...an image that is identical in each half works the best but I'd love to see ideas for those that aren't as well. I hope you'll dig a little deeper this week and try it out!

Please remember to put WT196 in your keywords section and post a link back here so that we can all see your designs.

My sample: Chocolate Silver Christmas

Gallery Submissions

Happy Stamping!

Julia

Thanks for the fun challenge, Julia! I have a few other ideas, but they're going to have to wait until I get some more Christmas cards made.

Julia, I often stamp only a part of an image - just the part I might need for what I'm working on. Does that count? Or do you mean very specifically that we can only use half of a symmetrical image?

Sorry about your techno issues. It seems like they're everywhere and so maddening!
