Hi peeps! Happy Friday! It's time for a 10-minute "Speed Stamping" challenge at As You See It!! Those are always fun! This week, it's Shades of Blue:
As much as I love blue, you would think this would have been a really easy challenge for me....well, I made FOUR cards before I was happy with the final choice! Most of my blues are less vibrant than the challenge photo, so I just embraced a few of them from my Authentique's Alpine collection:
I also used the FMS sketch:
I layered some of the lighter papers on a Very Vanilla cardbase, and trimmed off the little tab at the top of the paper where it meets the spine of the tablet, and used that for my sentiment, stamped in Pretty Peacock ink. As an afterthought (which is what upped my time to 8 minutes and 14 seconds), I decided to diecut a snowflake in glimmer paper and back it with another piece of blue:
Can you speed stamp something in less than 10 minutes, in shades of blue? If you can, share it with us at As You See It, and be sure to tell us your time!! Can't wait to see what you create! And just for fun, this was the original one I was going to post, but decided it wasn't quite "blue" enough...still pretty, but more teal than blue, using the same sketch:
Thanks for stopping in today!
Cassidy got her brown belt this week! (Sorry the photos aren't so good!)
We enjoyed watching it except for the sparring....I just hate seeing little kids "fight" with each other, LOL! Enjoy your day and be blessed!
