Speed Challenge 2

The Lovely Keren Baker and a few of her friends are taking part in a speed challenge, they have just completed number 2. Seeing as i enjoy this type of challenge i thought i would join in once again.

Thank you to Pamellia for letting me display the badge she has created for the challenge.

These are the guidelines (or rules, if you prefer!)
1. Craft for no more than 10 mins
2. Mention the time it took you to create your project in your post (you might be super-speedy and it might take you less time… and it would be interesting to know).
3. You can create ANY project whatsoever
4. You can get your supplies ready before you hit your timer

If you visit Ingrid’s blog you will find a list of all the ladies who are taking part on a regular basis.

This time there is also a colour challenge

I didn’t have all these colours so concentrated on the turquoise element.

Speed challenge 2 Items

Collected together all my bits and bobs, i had some die cuts over from a project i completed and thought i could incorporate them.

Challenge 2 completed

The card is 4 x 4 inches but the added border makes it a little larger.

Die cut an aperture placed it over the card and used the Artiste Clear Embossing Pad to cover the area, went over with Pan Pastel Turquoise shade then sealed the layer.

Used the Indigo Blue Circle Dot Background stamp over the circle, used Turquoise Pan Pastel over the top, sealed again.

Added a die cut flower from Memory Box which is called Chloe, this is one of my favourite die cut flowers, can see me using this on a lot of projects.

Stamped the word Nature from JOFY plate 11 and added onto the circle. finally added the border which is a new die cut for me, it’s from Tonic and is from the Ornate Elegance Header Fold Die Set – Item 596e.

The time it took to make this CAS creation was:

time to complete

Better than last time, i had this planned in my head before i started, wished i would have added more green tones now…

Thanks for dropping by.

  7. I'm pressed with how pretty and neatly this came out. If I tried this, I fear all I would wind up with is a mess. I'm good under pressure and with a deadline, but 10 minutes would be hard for me.

    (Hope you got my message on your other post explaining AB & T Tuesday)

  8. Oooh. Love the idea with the aperture and the cool colours ( at least you remembered about the colour scheme which is more than I did!)!! Fab card- glad you joined in!! x
