w&w Belated 2nd Birthday Bash | Over the Edge Challenge with Kelly

w&w_bb2ndb_challengefinal

Hi Folks! Here's a challenge you can participate in with practically any supplies you have. For this challenge, please have one or more of your main elements bleeding off an edge of your card. 

One reason to bleed an image off the edge of your card is to emphasize height. For example, this bird is sitting so high up in her tree that her head doesn't even fit on the card. Do you think this card would have a completely different feel if the circle were in the lower right quadrant of the card?

(note the white spotlight is also bleeding off the edge of the card.)
  
Another reason to bleed an image off the edge of your card is to create drama. We could feature the faceted heart right in the middle of the card, but then your eye wouldn't have to work at all to determine what the shape is. By bleeding the heart off the right edge, your eye rests on the image a little longer to try and figure it out.
The edge also acts as a good anchor to keep your elements from floating around in the middle of your card. In this example, the "kindness" sentiment, and the black banner both bleed off the right edge, serving to ground them both.

Hopefully I've pushed you "Over the Edge" with this challenge! I'd be so honored if you joined me!
